Default PrimeNet error 40: No Assignment

Sorry for the dummy question, but although I went through searching a lot in the forums, I haven't found an answer to my problem. I am pretty sure it is very basic, so please forgive me in advance for taking your time.

I just moved from a Windows 7/64 bits to a Windows 7/32 bits machine, being the new one pretty much faster than the former.

I simply copied all files from the original folder to the new machine and downloaded the latest version of the Prime95 executable.

Prime95 seemingly didn't care for my previous exponents (47584657 and 50590879) and started testing two new ones. So went to "Advanced | Test..." and input my original exponents.

Now, although Prime95 has resumed the tests from where the old machine left it, I am receiving "PrimeNet error 40: No Assignment" when Prime95 loads.

I would appreciate any help on understanding/fixing this.

Best regards,

Did you get the configuration files copied? If the computer is seen as a new computer and not associated with you, that could be the problem.

I did copy all the files, just replaced the executable with the most recent one.

Previous version running on old machine: version (2009-03-15)
Now using: version (2009-07-13)

Could that be the problem?

Check your worktodo.txt file.
It should read Test=SomeAlphaNumericString,47584657,xx,y where the xx is the number of trial factoring bits that have been done and y is a 0 or a 1.
xx is most likely 68 and y is most likely 1.

If the SomealphaNumericString is missing, (e.g. Test=47584657,xx,y) insert a N/A in its place (e.g. Test=N/A,47584657,xx,y).
