  1. After the latest update for Windows 10 (Sept 2019), I began to have a variety of troubles opening TMG v9.05.0000. First I noticed that it was asking for a file (dbf was the designated type) with no indication of what it was looking for. Clicking on 'abort' caused TMG to freeze - task manager was only way to get out of the program. Clicking on 'ignore' simply caused the asking window to repeat. If I clicked on ignore a number of times (perhaps 30 - 50 times), eventually the program opened and seemed to run normally. Going through all the maintenance protocols was of no help. Loading from a previous backup - no help. Other TMG projects seem to open without issue, and appear to work normally. After trying all these remedies, I then started to see the 'alias not found' error, followed by 5** xcondition errors (** various numbers), intermixed with the dbf ask. Again, if I plow through enough 'cancel' or 'ignore' clicks, TMG eventually opens and seems to work correctly. I have a number of sub-windows open, and one time, before closing, I turned off the 'focus group' window. The next time TMG opened normally, and I thought my troubles were over, but alas, not so. When Win10 did its last update before all this started, TMG was open, and Windows closed it. Does anyone have any idea what is going on, and how to repair my project.
