  1. Virginia,


    Yes, I'm running v8 on WinXP under Parallels.


    I haven't found a way to edit a report (usually saved as a PDF). Too bad that bug was fixed. It was really handy to edit, then print.


    The report output goes to an ISC file for the List of.... Yes, I have the PDF printer installed.


    Thanks for your continued help.



  2. Help! I'm on vacation and the program just crashed. It ran fine 2 days ago, and today when I opened it, I got the following error:



    Fatal error: Exception code=C0000005 @ 2012.10.02 08:17:46 PM. Error log file: C:Program FilesThe Master Genealogist v8VFP9Rerr.log

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled TMG8. I have rolled back my system restore.




  3. Okay. I changed the export to EVEN/TYPE for the custom census tags. They still did not appear in the gedcom export.


    Now, these events have as a second principal "1XXX US Census", a special individual tag I use for tracking census records. The first principal is the head of household and the other household members are listed as witnesses. Would any of this impact the way the event is exported?


    How does the gedcom export treat the witnesses? I don't find the witnesses in the gedcom file at all.


    Many thanks for the help.

  4. I'm trying to export a small portion of my database but some events are being excluded. The State Census events are included but the Federal Census events are not. The GedCom tag is CENS for both types of events. On a larger export, only the State Census and the 1790 Federal Census events export. Each Federal Census year has its own event tag: FedCen1XXX. I have done the optimization and validated file integrity. Any ideas?




  5. I have tried dragging and dropping exhibit files, but only with a lot of frustration. If I add exhibit files one by one, everything works fine. If I only add 3-4 files at a time, everything works fine. If I add more than 3-4 files at a time using drag and drop, TMG locks up and has to be shut down (through task manager) and restarted. When restarted, the exhibit files are there.


    Any ideas?



  6. Debbie - what medium did you use to make the backup on the other computer?  If you tried to restore directly from the backup medium, try first copying the .sqz file from the backup medium to your computer and see if it will restore from there.






    I backup to my hard disk, then copy the file to a thumb drive. I then copy the file from the thumb drive to the other computer's hard disk before running the restore. Both machines run XP Home & I am admin on both.


    Having read the comments & suggestions made, I generally do the backup on exit. Tonight, I will make a backup from within TMG & see if I have better luck tomorrow morning with the restore.


    Thanks to everyone for the input.



  7. I installed the 6.08 update on my computer earlier this week. When I tried to restore a database (saved under 6.08 on another computer), I received the following message:


    "The selected backup file cannot be restored by the current version of The Master Genealogist. It may be an older backup format which is supported by the Import wizard, however."


    I tried to import it but it didn't recognize the sqz file. I then reinstalled 6.07 on the computer & tried to restore the latest backup, which it refused because it was a later backup version. (I knew that.) I then reinstalled 6.08 update. I can restore backups done in 6.07 to 6.08, but I cannot restore backups done in 6.08.


    Thankfully, this computer is only used for reference & off-site backup purposes, but still, it's frustrating.


    Any ideas would be appreciated.
