My wife and I both use TMG (v 9.05 UK). My PC (computer A) is running Windows 10 Prof (upgraded from W7 Prof) and TMG runs perfectly. My wife has recently purchased a new PC (computer which was pre-installed with Windows 10 Prof. I loaded TMG onto B and restored the Project (more than 15000 persons) and everything appeared to be running smoothly – until we went to enter some UK census data.
As we are both from the UK the majority of the people in our Project are/were in the UK. We have separate tags for each UK census (Census 1841, Census 1851, etc). We both have a few US and Canadian relatives, so we use a US Census tag and a Canadian Census tag. On B, these latter tags now appear as Census 19011 and as Census 190111 respectively. Also the default sentence structure in the UK census tags has been changed.
On A they read “ In 1911 [PF] <|and [PO]> appeared in the census <[L1]> …<[L5]>, <[M]>”
On B they read “[P] <was | and [PO] were> Census 1911 <[M]> <[D]> <[L]>”
I have uninstalled TMG on B and reinstalled it, but the problem remains.
I have also copied the entire Projects folder from A to B, and although everything appears correctly on A, the tags are corrupted when the same database files are displayed on B. I had always assumed that the tag definitions were specific to the Project, so copying the Projects folder should transfer all the tag definitions as well, but it doesn’t seem to work that way. I’ve tried exporting the tags from A and importing them to B, but B recognises that they already exist so will not overwrite them.
I’ve looked in Terry Reigel's Data File Storage webpage and in the Help within TMG but I can’t see anything that explains what is going on (let alone how to fix it).
Can anyone explain what is going on?
