Default Something strange ...

I have returned to Prime95 after a bit of a break, and I'm trying to get all the cores running on my boxes. I am trying to run them on Trial Factoring to low limits, however I can get 2 cores running on TF but the others try to run Double checking, even though I have specified that they should be running TF. I have tried and tried many options but without success. Am I missing something blindingly obvious. On my other box, when I try to get the cores running then they refuse to start saying "Stopping worker at user request."
Again is there something I am missing?

Assignment Rule Change (why did I get a double-check?)

though I don't use prime95 I have paid enough attention to know that prime95 isn't the best program to do the TF on ( GPU's are typically up to 100 times the speed of a CPU, hence the GPUto72 project).

I had already changed the setting there so that each box is NOT set to run at least one DC a year.

I will be setting my GPU to run TF very shortly, I just have to go through the mechanics of setting up on my Mac.
I did run TF previously on the GPU on my previous Mac, but I can't find the procedure for setting it up, yet ...

No. You should get your TF assignments. I'll investigate.
