=== FIXED: Error Generating Reports ======================
Some users have reported encountering an error with TMG v7 when generating a report to a word processor format. The error that was generated was:
Could not create or open CONV_LOG.TXT on scratch drive.
Cannot find c:\Program Files\The Master Genealogist 7\Wordproc\wpt.sp1
or something similar.
Phil in Technical Support has been working with Jim Byram and a number of other users and has identified the cause of such errors. It seems that external programs will sometimes modify a critical entry in the Windows Registry upon which TMG relies. Users who have encountered this message are encouraged to write to firstname.lastname@example.org for help in resolving this problem.
Note that this error is not connected to the known problem generating reports under the 64-bit version of the Vista operating system.

=== New Data CDs from the U.S. ========================

William B. Martin, AN INDEX TO THE VIRGINIA REPORTS FROM JEFFERSON TO 33RD GRATTAN, BOTH INCLUSIVE WITH A COMPLETE TABLE OF CASES, (1881) 2009.
$19.95 ($15.96 during the Spring Sale!) http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=US0386
An understanding of the law concerning a given event, whether it is inheritance, ownership of property, legitimacy of offspring or citizenship, is often necessary to correctly interpret the information in a document. Determining what law was in effect can be a difficult task, determining how a particular law should be interpreted and applied an even more difficult task. Legislation by governing bodies establishes the law, but it is interpreted in the courts. Case law as described in the Virginia Law Reports explains how a law should be applied under specific conditions. Finding these descriptions can be difficult and usually requires, at the very least, a trip to a major law library and access to historical index databases. (more...)
