As Mystwalker explained, NewPGen expects users to sieve for large primes, not so small ones. To check primality of small exponents it's better to use Proth.exe for a single k, or PrimeForm (now called "pfgw") for several k's. I'm enclosing the file to use with PrimeForm. On a fast machine you can check exponents 1-500 of several k's in seconds.
