I have TMG Gold vs 8.08.  When I click "Check for update" it says "Your software is up to date"


I know there is a version 9, so what is going wrong here?


Thanks for any suggestions

The "Check for Update" feature in TMG, like other programs I've used, only tells you about fractional (free) updates to the current version. So it's telling you that your copy of TMG8 is current. What it's not saying is that there is a new paid version, a totally new program, available. I agree this is somewhat misleading, but it seems to be the industry convention.


See my Tutorials and Articles on using TMG at tmg.reigelridge.com

The Second Edition of my book, A Primer for The Master Genealogist, is still available
. For more information see my website.

Said another way it is telling you that you have the most up-to-date version of Version 8 that exists. It never tells whether there is a newer major version.
See my book on how I customize TMG My Way.
