Here is puzzle #28 from the now-defunct Sudoku Magazine's Sudoku Mix #1. The second image is where I've gotten stuck. SudokuSolver gives me errors when trying to get hints or solve (from either point) and refuses to solve it, although it says its a valid puzzle.

The error I get at the starting point (first image) is "** Solver error: Candidate:6 not found in c9 trying "

The error I get at the "stuck" point (second image) is "** Solver error: Candidate:34 not found in r1 trying "

Am I doing something wrong (perhaps some options not set correctly), or is the puzzle itself at fault, or is there a bug in SudokuSolver? The puzzle code:

Code:
SumoCueV1=0J0=7J0=0J0=0J1=0J1=0J1=0J1=1J2=0J2=4J0=0J0=9J3=0J1=0J1=0J1=1J1=0J2=8J2=0J0=1J0=0J3=2J3=0J1=6J4=0J2=4J2=0J2=0J0=0J0=5J3=1J3=0J4=4J4=6J5=0J5=0J2=0J6=0J3=0J3=0J4=1J4=0J4=0J5=0J5=0J2=0J6=0J3=8J3=3J4=0J4=1J5=4J5=0J7=0J7=0J6=8J6=0J6=5J4=0J8=9J5=0J5=6J7=0J7=7J6=0J6=2J8=0J8=0J8=0J8=3J5=0J7=1J7=0J6=2J6=0J8=0J8=0J8=0J8=0J7=3J7=0J7

Hi Enxio

The behaviour of SudokuSolver for this puzzle was strange. When I first set up the puzzle it was able to score it and solve it. However when I saved the puzzle and later reloaded it, SS wasn't able to score it or solve it.

When I imported the puzzle from your code string and immediately tried solve, it solved the puzzle without any problems.
