Rather often, when working in TMG, I do something that causes an "Open File" selection window to open. This window opens automatically to C:\Program Files (x86)\The Master Genealogist v9 and indicates "Files of type: Table/DBF (*.dbf)".

I assume that whatever I have done is making TMG look for a DBF file, but none of the *.dbf files available in this window (at C:\Program Files (x86)\The Master Genealogist v9) work. Each time I select a file and click "OK" the
file select window just opens again.

Clicking "Cancel" closes the window, but it immediately re-opens.


Clicking on the "X" in the upper right of the window does nothing. All the rest of TMG is inaccessible while this window is open.

The only way I can get out of this is to do a [Ctrl] [Alt] [Del] to get Task Manager and close TMG from there.

I have not been able to figure out what key combination I may be typing that causes this window to open, but it happens several times in a multi-hour work session and is pretty annoying.

Can anyone help me understand:

    1. What I might be doing to make this happen, and
    2. If there are any actions I can take to close the window without having to go Task Manager to kill TMG?

Thanks for any help!

As you have found, the only way to deal with this type of error is to end the TMG process in Task Manager.
