I don't know how difficult it is to have the panel display an error message (without a popup, please) saying the setting is out-of-bounds while typing within the field? Also, perhaps allow 4?

Thanks for the great work again George. Humans can be such a pain sometimes...

Which work type should I select in order to get only CERT assignments?
I seem to have found out the answer to this. I have set "Days of Work=0", and now I only receive CERT work. I don't know if it is supposed to do that.

Mine accepted 31.9 after stating a max of 31.988. (On a 4-worker, 128GB system). The program and OS need some space.

On a 4GB system I went to increase it from 1 to 2 and it stated a max of 0.998. I had to cancel out of the popup just to keep the 1GB value.

and yes, thanks for the great new upgrade.

Are you running low on disk space?

Low disc space like retina says, or not enough RAM available to process the proofs correctly. Proof reader: There is nothing to see in a zero-length file.

File or folder permissions issues? Path problems?

Looking back through his posts, this appears to be a Windows based system. If this is the case, then what he is experiencing should not be happening, if the hardware is functioning properly. There could also be something strange, and unseen, going on with his OS. Something is preventing Prime95 from writing a proof file. What could do that?

Sorry for not giving the info, but yes, it is win 10 and do have permissions etc. Seems to be able to upload but hen gives problems later. Not for every cert but sometimes. by the way, I also have a number of old p9xxx files. Should they not automatically be deleted or should this be done manually?
