Error when adding a new tag type.
I had this error a few years ago and couldn't fix it. It comes when adding a new tag type by copying another. It doesn't matter which tag type is copied I get the same error.
To get around the issue you have to force a 'crash' in TMG then restart, then delete, but you don't have the new tag created.
I'm then unable to add a new tag type. Any ideas for a fix?

The error suggests an issue with the tag type table memo file (the .fpt file).

Although this looks like a data issue, I'd try running the installer and selecting [Repair] and if that does nothing, try reinstalling.

Send me your project so that I can check it. Make a project backup and select only the project files. If the backup is too large to email, you'll need to make it available for download.
