Default Prime95 v25.7 Daytime 8MB - Only 1 worker runs

Hi,

I am running Prime95 64-bit 25.7 Build 4 on Windows Vista 64-bit. I have allocated 2 workers: one is doing a P-1 factoring and the other is doing an LL test. Daytime memory=8MB Nighttime memory=1024MB.

The problem is that during daytime, worker 1 complains of not having enough memory - it alternates trying P-1 factoring, says not enough memory, then tries doing the LL test for that number and fails saying that other processes are using too much memory or something like that. Worker 2 continues the LL test.

How do I get both workers to do LL testing during daytime?

Regards,
Azhad.

Maybe 8MB isn't enough memory for two LLs. Try doubling it to 16MB or more.

The meory limits only concern P-1 stage 2 factoring and ECM (stage 2 ?).

If indeed worker #1 tries to start LL testing and fails because of no memory it is definetly a bug. Prime95 v25 is still buggy about memory allocation (the 64 bits version refuses to work with more 1700 MB...)

I'll try to reproduce the problem when I return from vacation.

Will be fixed in version 25.8 build 3.
