Mark, thank you for the continued efforts and time on your sieving programs! This is very much appreciated!

On my Windows 2012 R2 system with an Intel Xeon E5-2620 cksieve crashes, directly after starting. Which I think still matches your comment from the start post that there were issues with the cksieve.

By running (as example):
cksieve -b 2 -p 2 -P 1000000 -n 100 -N 10000 -o ck_remain.out -O ck_factors.out
cksyeve v1.2, a program to find factors of (b^n+/-1)^2-2 numbers
Sieve started: 2 < p < 1000000 with 19802 terms

Windows eventlog shows:
Faulting application name: cksieve.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5a7f7e2c
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.3.9600.18821, time stamp: 0x59ba86db
Exception code: 0xc0000374
Fault offset: 0x00000000000f1c10
Faulting process id: 0x190c
Faulting application start time: 0x01d3aa65f8e8626d
Faulting application path: C:\mtsieve\cksieve.exe
Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:

Also beside the o/O cosmetic points in the help section, with cksieve.exe -h there is a small typo:
cksyeve v1.2, a program to find factors of (b^n+/-1)^2-2 numbers
-h --help prints this help)
