PETSc with errors depend on the number of processors

Hello,
I have difficulties to use PETSc with freefem.
When I run a exemple script (stokes-3d-PETSc.edp) with 4 proc everything work fine. But when I change the number of proc, 6 or 8, I have (sometime) error message, Segmentation Violation, probably memory access out of range .

Has anyone had the same problem or have an idea of solution?

Best Regards

I cannot reproduce this error. Could you update to Windows 11 by any chance? Or try on a Linux box?

thank you for your answer. I will try on a ubuntu boot.

It works with ubuntu, It will be the solution before update to W11.
Thanks you
