  2. Loading TMG - no photos loaded

    Tom, All that I can suggest... 1) Run the installer and select repair. If that doesn't work... 2) Uninstall TMG, delete the TMG9 program folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\The Master Genealogist v9"), and then reinstall. Uninstalling and reinstalling will have no effect on your TMG data. In both cases above, the controls and .DLLs are reregistered. and that should fix the issue.
  3. Loading TMG - no photos loaded

    Jim - followed the above procedure and then ran TMG but it came up with the same error message. Tried it a second time with the same results. Restarted the computer and ran TMG. Same error message. Thanks for trying to help. Tom Malek

  5. Edit menu items grayed out

    Jim, John Cardinal's TMG Utility can search most fields in the database, so should be able to do what you want. https://www.johncardinal.com/tmgutil/
  6. Edit menu items grayed out

    From Help... "The Find Text feature on the Edit menu provides a quick method for locating particular text in a Memo field in any part of The Master Genealogist or in the Text Editor." It's only active when editing text. It's not a feature to search the database.
  7. I'm attempting to find certain text items in my database. According to the "help contents", this should be able be accomplished from the Edit menu. There is and item in this menu called "Find text" but it and most all other items in that menu are grayed out. Can anyone help me out as to why?
  8. Loading TMG - no photos loaded

    Tom, When you get a program error, stop, record the error or take a screenshot, and close whatever you are doing. Clicking Ignore and proceeding accomplishes nothing. If there is anything about the fix that I'm suggesting below that you don't understand, ask before proceeding. OLE error code 0x80040154: Class not registered - This usually happens because a file cdintf400.dll is not registered. Try this. You need to run the Command Prompt as administrator and register the .dll. 1) Run File Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and select cmd.exe and right-click on it and select 'Run as administrator'. 3) type: "cd \windows\syswow64" (as always, no quotes) (or "cd \windows\system32" for a 32-bit system) and press enter. 4) type: "regsvr32 cdintf400.dll /u" and press enter. You should get a message that it succeeded. 5) press the up arrow and the previous line should be repeated. Hit <Backspace> twice to remove the "/u" (or type "regsvr32 cdintf400.dll" from scratch) and press enter. You should get another message that it succeeded. 6) Type "Exit" and press Enter to close the window (or click on the X if that works) Now try to run TMG and see if that fixed the issue. Jim
  9. 1. Clicked on the TMG icon. Received the following message: OLE error code 0x80040154: Class not registered. 48 TMGAPPOBJ.DOFORM 2. I clicked on "Ignore" Received the following message: Array dimensions are invalid. 1 TBRLAYOUT/CHKWITNESSES.MUPDATE 3. I clicked on "Ignore" TMG data loads but there were no photos What happened? How do I fix it?
  10. New Error Happening

    Trinity, your question has been answered several times on the TMG list.
  11. I was adding an Obituary... all completed, acted all good... the obituary is not there... hmmm tried again... gone... tried a different person... gone.... Re-indexed several times, optimized, all maintenance... it will not hold this entry... Any suggestions? Rebooted system, restarted TMG and now there are no people coming up, I can see them in the search, but no window when selected.... what is happening?

    I have forgotten how to print out the narrative file. for report options.

    I get the print page but can't get it to print and it is like a pop-up and you can see the TMG page. in the background

    .  The chart is just for me - I used it like quick notes or memo notes. I wrote my own story and didn't use the package to write

    If anyone is there can you please reply.?  I just want two charts. Expected to be completed in 2000.

    Now I can't get the print page. It was a fluke.

    Many thanks

      Kaye,

      I have no idea what you are asking.

      Start with which report and state exactly what you are trying to do.

  14. Read only files unlock

    Your TMG program is probably locked by reverting to demo trial mode. You will need to re-enter your serial number. See this post: http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index.php?/topic/18219-repetitive-request-for-serial-number/&tab=comments#comment-71970
  15. I can not get into my files to add information,it says read only ,and ADD is not highlighted to use.
  16. Changing tag type to another

    At Events > Change Event Type.
  17. Changing tag type to another

    The TMG Utility for tags changes sort order or deletes them. Where is the facility to change them?
  18. Changing tag type to another

    Create the new tag type... Use TMG Utility to change the old tags to the new tag. https://www.johncardinal.com/tmgutil/
  19. I set up a custom tag called FSID to store FamilySearch IDs for my folks. Not being conversant with Tag types, I set it up as an address type of tag, and stored the ID in the Title field. I found out that the FS tag ID standard is FSFTiD, and that the Title field is usually for royalty. I'll deal with Title issues later. What I would like to do without re-learning FoxPro (if I can even find a copy to use), is to find all of the people I've added the FSID to (about 50 or so, which I can do in a report), add an FSFTiD tag, copy the value of FSID to FSFTiD, then delete the FSID. Not asking too much is it? I noted a comment by John Cardinal about 15 years ago that stated his utility could change tag types, but I just don't see that capability anywhere in the current version (7.4). I can do all of the above manually, of course, but is there any way to do it mechanically? Thanks.
  20. Strange Pop up Error

    Thank you for the info, there hasn't been any changes so I was not sure if something was happening.
  21. TMG 9.0

    Carolyn, Sent you a message. Jim
  22. TMG 9.0

    I cannot access my TMG files so as to create a GEDCOM. I want to transfer my database to Legacy. I can access the files to read only. Not sure why I can't get back into them Thank you, Carolyn Marks
  23. Strange Pop up Error

    This type is error is very difficult and not something that you can deal with directly. These are usually timing errors. The exact nature of a C0000005 error can only be determined in a development environment and only when the error can be replicated. Did you check the VFP9Rerr.log (if it even exists)? Have you made any recent changes to your system that could affect TMG? (exclude Windows updates because system updates will not cause this) Have you rebooted your system? That might help. You might close any other applications that are running (although background applications such as security and email clients should have no effect).
  24. Getting this crazy error all of a sudden....What to do?
  25. Terry, The person who responded said, " I expect many others will frown on this procedure," after saying, "I don't bother setting the config (and friends) files to be restored to a test folder, I just let them go to the original location(s)." Therefore, I wasn't sure whether it was the right thing to do. Thanks for the confirmation. Judy Madnick Albany, NY
  26. Judy, As explained when you asked this question on the TMG list last week, if it's a temporary restore to test the ability to make a restore, it doesn't matter. It only matter if you are intending to use the restore to enter new data.
  27. I was just about to do a restore to a temporary restore folder and noticed that I have to choose a folder to restore configuration files and timeline files. Should they also be restored to the temporary folder? I don't recall noticing this before. (IOW, I didn't pay enough attention!). My exhibits are all external, so they're not an issue. Thanks, Judy Madnick Albany, NY
