  1. GOTERM error message on V7.04

    Thanks, Glenn, your article at least got rid of the GOTERM problem. It does not find my data folder (using Z:), but it is at least no worse than it was under Windows XP. Barbara
  2. GOTERM error message on V7.04

    I need help updating the advice about solving the GOTERM variable problem for TMG v8 and Win7. I'm running TMG 8 under VmWare Fusion (v3.1.3 if it matters) on a Mac. I recently upgraded to Win7, and I get the 3 error messages, "Variable [or Object] 'GOTERM' is not found'" as described in this thread. However, the solution given isn't working for me. The advice under Help in "Customizing Data File Storage" says I want: Windows 7 and Windows Vista C:\ProgramData\The Master Genealogist v8 (Shared Program Data Files) C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v8 (User Program Data Files) C:\Users\username\Documents\The Master Genealogist v8 (User Data Files) First, my TMG program is in C:\Program Files (x86)\TMG v8 . There is NO folder C:\ProgramData at all. There is a Libraries folder that has a Documents subfolder, and under that Documents and Public Documents folders. Other programs that I've installed for all users have put some things in Public Documents, which resolves to C:\Users\Public\Documents--is that what I should use for the shared program data files (that is, C:\Users\Public\Documents\TMG v8)? Second, my user data files are in Z:\Genealogy\TMG v8 , a folder on the Mac file system that is mounted on the PC side under VMWare. The path is \\vmware-host\Shared Folders\Genealogy\TMG v8. TMG v8 works fine getting and putting data to either of these synonymous paths. Since upgrading to Win7, I can no longer start TMG v8 and have Open Last Project active--I have to select the location each time, and I get 3 GOTERM errors each time I start TMG. Once I get past the errors and get TMG running, everything works normally. According to the advice in the help file, I didn't need to customize the shared program data location, so I placed a Data_paths.txt in C:\Program Files (x86)\TMG v8 that contains: [barb] UserProgramData=\\vmware-host\Shared Folders\Genealogy\TMG v8 UserData=\\vmware-host\Shared Folders\Genealogy\TMG v8 I placed the same file in \\vmware-host\Shared Folders\Documents\TMG v8, which is where my Libraries\Documents\Documents\TMG v8 folder points to. I repeat, \\vmware-host\Shared Folders is mounted on Z: , and in every case I've tried, they are equivalent. I'm not new to PC stuff but I'm new to Win7. Can someone provide some updated advice, please? In the course of the previous discussion, Jim Byram asked, "What is the environment on your desktop? Also, check the paths in Preferences on your desktop." Does this mean PC or Mac side, and how do you do that on Win7 if you meant on the PC side? Thanks very much, Barbara
  3. small bug in Restore

    Yes, I know, that's what I've been doing. But I move my projects between two computers several times a week and it's annoying. As I said, a small problem. Barbara
  4. small bug in Restore

    Yes, I do have the exhibits path set. It does not respect it. Barbara
  5. I think there is a small bug in the Restore function that I haven't seen mentioned. I store my exhibits in a non-default place. For the life of me, I can't get any Restore configuration to remember where my location is. It's correct in the project file, I back the file up using my location, not the TMG default, but whether I use an existing configuration, overwrite an existing configuration or start a new configuration, Restore never remembers where the exhibits go and always sets it to the default location. Am I missing something, or is this an error? Barbara
  6. Restore problems with 6.08

    One machine is XP, the other is XP Pro. On both I am admin. And in any case, no matter what permissions I have, it would be a bug that a backup made on a computer does not work to restore on that same computer. I haven't yet tested others' theory that File|Backup works but File|Exit, Backup does not. I am grateful that WinZip works. Barbara
  7. Restore problems with 6.08

    I'm having the same problem. I backed up to my desktop hard disk, copied the sqz file to my laptop hard disk, then tried to restore (6.08 on both, of course.) Ideas? Barbara
