If you can post questions, can't you read the relevant information on the GIMPS site, in the readme files, look at the interface of the program ?

If somebody took the time to provide you with step by step instructions, I suppose your next question would be "how do I follow the step by step instructions ?"

... and complain that two steps are missing between 9 and 10.

I guess it's easier I just run it like the screenshot below, then see what shows up 2 weeks later.

The exponent is not assigned to you on the server "PrimeNet error 40: No assignment".

It is assigned to GPU72 for factoring and someone else might take it before you finish:103374163

103M is in Category 1: https://www.mersenne.org/thresholds/
which means your computer must have completed a certain number of exponents before:

Quote:
Category 1 First 96162 assignments. Exponents below 105757724.

Computer must have enough LL and DC GHz-days over the last 120 days to indicate the assignment will be completed in 30 days.
Computer must have no expired assignments or bad or suspect results in the last 120 days.
Computer must have returned at least 5 results in the last 120 days.
Setting for "days of work to queue" <= 5.
Not available for manual testing.
Must be completed in 90 days
Assignments are recycled if assignment is not started within 20 days or does not report in for 30 days or when assignment is more than 90 days old.

Which means the exponent is being poached, the assignment rules and the other users not respected.

Poached? I've never asked anyone to pay me anything.

Within GIMPS "Poached" means (working and) turning in results for exponents assigned to others, with the possible consequence of making their work unneeded and thus wasted.

Nothing to do with paying whomever.

Yep. He is coming very close to a ban, if after 100 posts on this forum he doesn't know basic stuff, he is doing it intentionally (i.e. trolling).

If such number is found, for which the PRP test says "this number has a high probability to be prime", then a LL test still has to be run for that number.

For the scope of this discussion (residues, shifts, factoring, etc), LL test and PRP test means the same thing. When you read that math page, every time you read "LL test", you can substitute in your mind with "PRP Test". The work similar.
Thanks. This is the answer I've needed since the beginning of this thread, so I can test the Mersenne exponents, wait and see whether it's a prime or not.

So far I've passed all the Jacobi error checks and already more than half way finish testing 103374163
