Prime95 29.4 32bit
Prime95 is a small and easy to use application that allows you to find Mersenne Prime numbers.

Mersenne numbers can be proved composite (not prime) by either finding a factor or by running a Lucas-Lehmer primality test.

Prime numbers have long fascinated amateur and professional mathematicians. An integer greater than one is called a prime number if its only divisors are one and itself. The first prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, etc. For example, the number 10 is not prime because it is divisible by 2 and 5.

A Mersenne prime is a prime of the form 2P-1. The first Mersenne primes are 3, 7, 31, 127, etc. There are only 40 known Mersenne primes.

There are two ways to use this program. The automatic way uses a central server, which we call the PrimeNet server, to get work to do and report your results. Anyone with Internet access, including AOL, CompuServe, and dial-up ISP users should use this method. You do not need a permanent connection to the Internet.

The second method is the manual method. It requires a little more work and monitoring. Recommended for computers with no Internet access or with some kind of firewall problem that prevents the automatic method from working.

New features in Version 29.4 of prime95.exe
-------------------------------------------

1) GIMPS has a new sub-project -- finding (probable) prime Mersenne cofactors.
This sub-project has two parts: 1) Running PRP tests, and 2) Finding
additional factors. To support this new sub-project there are three
new work preferences: PRP on Mersenne cofactors, PRP double-checking on
Mersenne cofactors, ECM on Mersenne cofactors.
2) Like LL tests, PRP tests now support shift counts to aid in running double-checks.
Shift counts are only supported for Mersenne numbers and Mersenne cofactors.
3) PRP tests now support a type of low overhead error checking that almost guarantees
correct results even on flaky hardware. We call this Gerbicz error-checking after
it was proposed by Robert Gerbicz at mersenneforum.org. This error-check only
works for base-2 numbers.
4) Because PRP tests are highly reliable, we now offer the option to do PRP tests
instead of Lucas-Lehmer primality tests. There are 3 new work preferences
similar to LL work preferences: first-time PRP tests, world record PRP tests,
PRP tests on 100 million digit numbers, and PRP double-checking.
If you are looking for a 100 million digit prime, PRP testing is recommended
rather than LL testing.
5) For non-base-2 PRP tests, there is a new option to run each iteration twice and
rollback if a mismatch occurs. Useful only on flaky hardware due to the obvious
high overhead.
6) Minor performance tweaks were made to stage 1 of P-1. Save files are incompatible
in stage 1. Wait for your P-1 test to reach stage 2 before upgrading.

Please read before downloading:
We always wanted there to be a download site without annoying ads
so we made one. Bills gotta be paid so if you want it to stay here,
please make a donation below. If everyone chips-in a little, we can
keep this going. We just need to get those two numbers below to be
the same my the end of the month
