V8 on a Mac

Recommended Posts

I already have v7 running on a Mac using Parallels. Do I have to make the same changes as I did with v7...needing a data_paths.txt file with two lines?

My experience with TMG 8, beta and release indicates that TMG 8 functions OK with the User Data (The Master Genealogist v8 folder tree) in the Mac Documents folder, I have not tested running with the data on the Mac side extensively, so to be on the safe side I have setup a data_paths.txt file for TMG 8. A future update might break the functionality. If I recall v6.12 worked with the data on the Mac side, when updated to v7 it was necessary to have the data on the Windows side.


:excl: If you have sharing enabled between your Win & Mac data folders and have not setup a data_paths.txt in the TMG 8 Program Folder the User Data folders will be created in your Mac Documents folder when you first run TMG 8.

The advice in this topic would be the same for TMG8.



Note John Cardinal's suggestion. He has a simple solution not requiring a Data_paths.txt file.





Could not get the link to John Cardinal's suggestion did not work for me.
