Good day, after being away from TMG for several years I upgraded to v8. I am running TMG on OSX10.7 VMWare Fusion v4.1.2. When ever I try toenter data I get an error message:
Error Reading File \\...\documents\the master genealogist v8\repeat_files.fpt 36 repush.

The only thig that seems to work is to abort but thaten everything that I entered stays.

Any other Mac users out there? Can anyone help?

Dick -

Try initializing your repeat files: File / Maintenance / Initialize Repeat Files. If that does not clear up the problem, one of our Mac users may have some suggestions for you. There are also tips for using TMG on a Mac in a pinned message here. The tips are for v7 but apply to v8.

It's been a while - nice to see you again -

It appears from the partial path you show your TMG project files are located on the Mac side, I'd suggest you follow the recommendation in my TMG on Mac article and place them on Windows side.
