  1. Exhibit folder not where it should be

    1. Typically, the file extensions are not displayed on a new Windows installation. You need to enable showing extensions in the File Explorer options. View / Options / View tab 2. Your TMG exhibits can be located wherever you choose. Use File Explorer to move the exhibits to your chosen location. Run TMG and use File / Maintenance / Validate File Integrity to relink the exhibits. (This only works if each exhibit file has a unique name.)
  2. flag values not visible

    The problem was that the layout was corrupted? If so, you could have deleted the layout from within TMG.
  3. flag values not visible

    The app.ini and layouts are located here... "C:\Users\(user account name)\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9" There was no point deleting the user data folder in Documents since nothing in that folder has anything to do with the program installation.
  4. flag values not visible

    Try closing the Flags window and reopening it. That might refresh it. Flags are stored in the Person table ($.dbf) so, hopefully, this is just some sort of display issue.
  5. What is TList7?

    Replied to your email. Update... This last issue was a corrupted .PJC file. Rebuilding the .PJC file made the project usable.
  6. What is TList7?

    TList7.ocx is installed on my system and I get no such error. The control is dated 8 Dec 2004 so such an error might not be entirely unexpected. " TList brings the maximum in flexibility and power to developers looking for a reliable grid, listview or treeview component for structured data presentation and data entry. TList is great for: manufacturing pick lists, checkbook registers, idea organizers, concept development, customer lists, reporting and the list goes on." http://www.bennet-tec.com/btProducts/TList/TList.htm There is a version 4 days newer than the one used by TMG.
  7. Odd Errors

    You did explicitly save the layout, right? [Save custom layout] / Layout Manager / [Overwrite] Looking for error... Haven't found anything.
  8. Odd Errors

    Unselect Show Age column, Show Witnesses column, Show Exhibits column, and Show excluded data. Also set number rows per tag to 2. Check the resulting Tag Box.
  9. Odd Errors

    You'll notice that you have both primary and non-primary tags displayed in the Tag Box. And the view is not filtered.
  10. Odd Errors

  11. Odd Errors

    Filters remain until cleared even when you exit and restart the program. (Filters are not saved in the layout file.) If the Tag Box is filtered to show only primary events, there will be a red "Filtered" at the top of the tag name column. You can right click in the Tag Box and clear the 'Filter for... Primary events' setting. The red "Filtered" heading will disappear. If you exit and restart TMG, the filter should still be cleared. The filter states are saved in the app.ini in the [Appearance] section. You could edit the ShowNonPrimaryEvents to Yes if you wish. Use Notepad or some other text editor. ShowNonPrimaryEvents=Yes (shows primary and non-primary events in the Tag Box) ShowNonPrimaryEvents=No (shows only primary events in the Tag Box) There is no setting to show only non-primary events in the Tag Box.
  12. Loading TMG - no photos loaded

    How about this forum...
  13. Loading TMG - no photos loaded

    Tom, All that I can suggest... 1) Run the installer and select repair. If that doesn't work... 2) Uninstall TMG, delete the TMG9 program folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\The Master Genealogist v9"), and then reinstall. Uninstalling and reinstalling will have no effect on your TMG data. In both cases above, the controls and .DLLs are reregistered. and that should fix the issue.
  14. Edit menu items grayed out

    From Help... "The Find Text feature on the Edit menu provides a quick method for locating particular text in a Memo field in any part of The Master Genealogist or in the Text Editor." It's only active when editing text. It's not a feature to search the database.

    Tom, When you get a program error, stop, record the error or take a screenshot, and close whatever you are doing. Clicking Ignore and proceeding accomplishes nothing. If there is anything about the fix that I'm suggesting below that you don't understand, ask before proceeding. OLE error code 0x80040154: Class not registered - This usually happens because a file cdintf400.dll is not registered. Try this. You need to run the Command Prompt as administrator and register the .dll. 1) Run File Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and select cmd.exe and right-click on it and select 'Run as administrator'. 3) type: "cd \windows\syswow64" (as always, no quotes) (or "cd \windows\system32" for a 32-bit system) and press enter. 4) type: "regsvr32 cdintf400.dll /u" and press enter. You should get a message that it succeeded. 5) press the up arrow and the previous line should be repeated. Hit <Backspace> twice to remove the "/u" (or type "regsvr32 cdintf400.dll" from scratch) and press enter. You should get another message that it succeeded. 6) Type "Exit" and press Enter to close the window (or click on the X if that works) Now try to run TMG and see if that fixed the issue. Jim
