about 5 hours to get to the second solution; about 6 hours for the full run to complete, assuring no third solution exists.
Used QB64 on a Dell Inspiron 537 with Intel Dual Core at 2.70 GHz, 1.59 GHz running Windows XP.
I had been using my newer computer, which had been going almost twice as fast, but was having a devil of a time trying to debug it after finding no solutions. I brought the program back to the old computer to debug under QB 4.5 (a DOS system that runs under XP). When I felt confident it was working, I set QB64 on the problem again to speed up the process, but on the same XP machine.
It would have run almost twice as fast if I had used QB64 on the newer Dell Inspiron 3847: 3.40 GHz Intel Core i3-4130 running Windows 7.
I really wish Microsoft hadn't left out 16-bit compatibility in its operating systems newer than XP.
