Message 43908 - Posted: 24 Nov 2011 | 21:25:13 UTC

Whenever I restart a GFN32768 test it always reports that 'the checkpoint version doesnt match current test. Current test will be restarted'

It then does what it says on the tin and restrts the test from scratch. I used version 4.2.3 so I thought this was the problem I upgraded to 4.3.6 but the same thing happens.

Any Ideas

Many Thanks

Several thoughts come to mind:

1) If the directory (or the prior checkpoint file) don't have the correct permissions, a newer, correct checkpoint file can't be written when Genefer shuts down.

2) I see you have 8 WUs. How many instances of PRPNet are you running? If you're running more than one instance, are they running in the same directory, or in different directories? Each instance needs to be running in it's own directory.

That's all I've got.

Thanks for the reply.
In answer
1) Dont know about the permissions, I just run the file as is.. I just download the current client and run it. dont know how to check the permissions, I hope the standard permissions are what is required.

2) I have at present 3 instants or prpnet running (2 when you checked) each instant download 4 wu. They are each in their own directory as I run the 4 quad install client when I install the current version.

Thaks for your help and does my reply help any?

Ian

I was really hoping you were running everything in the same directory, but, alas, you're doing it right. ;)

I'm out of ideas. Hopefully someone else has something to suggest.

One thing you could try -- and this is a shot in the dark -- is to wait until the current WUs complete, then delete everything and re-install from scratch and see if it works.

You could try commenting out all of the the "geneferexe=" lines in prpclient.ini, except "geneferexe=genefer80.exe".

Make sure that you are using the current version of genefer (v2.2.1 I believe). When this happens, genefer is supposed to exit with a specific message that the PRPNet client will then use to know that a different version of genefer needs to be run to continue the PRP test.

You will have to wait for someone to build it for your OS, then supply that build to John so that he can include it in the zip files. 2.2.1 has been built for some OSes, but not others, such as Windows.
