  1. Field name is a duplicate or invalid

    The error suggests an issue with the tag type table memo file (the .fpt file). Although this looks like a data issue, I'd try running the installer and selecting [Repair] and if that does nothing, try reinstalling. Send me your project so that I can check it. Make a project backup and select only the project files. If the backup is too large to email, you'll need to make it available for download.

  2. New Error Happening

    The error suggests that there is a problem with the image file. Remove the exhibit and see if that resolves the thumbnail creation issue. If it does, you need to try a fresh copy of the image file.
  3. Link to 9.05 update

    Missing data in the Other info Box is likely a project issue, not a program issue. The .PJC file might be damaged. Send me the .PJC file so that I can check it. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram Follow up - The issue appears to be Gail's custom layout. The Other info box labels appear but there are no values. Changing to a different layout shows the values. The Value header and the values were hidden to the right. The header issue and the values issue had to be fixed independently.
  4. Military Service tag type error

    Military Service (Military-Service?) is a custom tag type. Try deleting the tag type. If you can't delete it, I can.
  5. TMG v.9 corrupted

    Nothing is corrupted. The issue is that the file cdintf400.dll used by TMG is not properly registered. The last TMG 9 installer is located here... Running the installer and selecting [Repair] or uninstalling and reinstalling might fix the .DLL issue. %%%%%%%%%% My notes say this is the issue. The reinstall was the easy way to try and fix it. Here's the manual way. Program Error - OLE error code 0x80040154: Class not registered The error occurs because a file cdintf400.dll used by the PFD driver is not registered. The file should be located here... "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cdintf400.dll" 1) Close TMG 2) If running the Windows 10 or 11 Start menu, right-click on the Start button and select 'Command Prompt (Admin)'. Alternately, 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)
  6. Living Flag Corrupted

    Repaired the Living flag values in the C-table (Flags).
  7. Living Flag Corrupted

    That's the Flags window, not the Flag Manager. Send me the .__C.DBF and __C.FPT files from your project and I'll take a look. Make a .ZIP archive of the two files and send it. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  8. Variable errors

    One of the repeat file databases is corrupted. It happens. Nothing that you can do to prevent that.
  9. Variable errors

    With TMG closed, delete the files in the Repeat_files folder. C:\Users\(your user account name)\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Repeat_files New files will be created the next time that you run TMG.
  10. 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.)
  11. flag values not visible

    The problem was that the layout was corrupted? If so, you could have deleted the layout from within TMG.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. What is TList7?

    Replied to your email. Update... This last issue was a corrupted .PJC file. Rebuilding the .PJC file made the project usable.
  15. 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.
