Problem solved. It turns out that the copy of Prime95.exe in the backup directory somehow got executed and fetched its own work, at the same time while the regular copy was running. What it...

The fact that Shadow, Satellite and Remote all use the same IP address makes sense because they are all laptops running in my apartment, sharing the same router. The 4-core Workstation is my...

I don't know how practical it is, but it might be best to do some kind of FFT test run during start-up, before anything else starts, so it is interrupted only minimally. You know those Windows...

Well, I know I wasn't logged in under any other account when it happened, just my regular user account.

The problem occurred after a fresh reboot, so I don't think it was a locked file handle. Since it's only occurred twice for me over the last year, it's going to be hard to pinpoint, although I'll...

The only information of note in the log files are the "CPU identity mismatch" errors (PrimeNet error 33). All the configuration files have full read/write access.

Well I ended up making 4 copies of the CPU! I couldn't get the original to work again due to an access denied error, presumably because I lost the original ServerUID setting. So for now I've sucked...
