Bricxjo posted a topic in The Master Genealogist v8I was running TMG v8.04 on Windows 7 (64-bit), and I attempted to save a Descendant Indented Chart to a file. TMG went off into cyberoblivion and never completed, locking up the program entirely and eating up CPU time. After rebooting my computer, I checked for an update and discovered v8.08 was available. I then downloaded and installed the update, which the program indicated had been done successfully. But when I next ran TMG, the splash screen and the Help screen both continued to show v8.04. When I tried to update again, it said that I already had the latest update. The Descendant Indented Chart still doesn't work (and hangs in the same way), so I think I am actually still running on v8.04, but the program won't allow me to update, because it "thinks" I already have updated. Any suggestions on both the chart problem and the update problem? Brian Neil Burg

I am trying to set up both US & UK versions of TMG v8 on one windows 7 PC using the same method I used for TMG v7 on a single XP machine. Reason? my wife is a yank and I'm a brit. First install (UK) goes fine when signed in as "David", for a single user, in a unique (tagged with UK) folder. I can execute the samle project. Second install (US) fails when signed-in as "Patricia", for a single user, in a unique (tagged with US) folder. The error message reads essage .... "Error opening installation log file. Verifythat the specified log file location exists and that you can write to it" Isthere a preferred method for what I am trying to do? Can anyone suggest what I am doing wrong? Any help appreciated David
