Assuming Prime95 is version 25 you have to exit Prime95 to modify any configuration file (prime.txt, local.txt and worktodo.txt.

You might check if Prime.txt contains the following lines :
- MaxExponents=M (where M is at least the number of workunits you have.)
- DaysOfWork=D (where D should be bigger than the number of days your worktodo.txt will need to complete.)
- UnreserveDays=U (use U= D+30 or bigger otherwise you might unreserve a lot of exponents after startup)

To add work of your chosing to wortodo.txt there are two ways :

1 - Create a worktodo.add file (the extension must be ".add" not ".add.txt".) Start the file by a line "[Worker #W]" where W is the number of the worker you want to assigne the new work to. Add the workunits you want. After a while the content of that file will be appended to your worktodo.txt file.


2 - Exit Pime95 first.
- Add the workunits to worktodo.txt.
- Restart Prime95.

In any case once the work is added :

- Communicate with the server.
- Exit Prime95 again.
- Remove all the lines that contain NA as assignement ID from the worktodo.txt file.
- Restart Prime95.
- Communicate with the server sending expected completion dates.
