I have successfully created GEDCOM files from my old Windows XP 32 bit "GSP Family Tree" and now have the files stored on a flash drive. So, Yes please, I would like you to register me for the Beta version for Windows 7 64 bit.
I'm using FTB 188.8.131.526. I started with Aldfear and I have about 260 persons. Now I want to chang to a better program so I tried "Brothers Keeper, Legacy, Oedipus Pro Gen, TMG, Haza and of course Family Tree Builder". FTB and Legacy where the better programs and FTB is the program I want. I installed it on my pc (8Gb, win7 64bit) But very often it chrashed suddenly. All my files who weren't saved are gone... I hope that the next build will solve my problem. So can I subscribe me as beta tester for the 5.0 build?
Hi is this problem fixed yet? I cant access my files today...no idea what beta testing is so cant help, but did notice that there is no windows 7 option in the innards, I a running version 5 I think as it was recently installed, 15 Feb2011.
Yes, thanks for your personal message today telling me to look for the stored files on my system, the problem was in how to open those files and work on them, and how your system recognises asterisks.
When I contacted you THREE weeks ago I could get nothing to work. Crash after crash after crash. I saved reloaded etc etc after 10 days not having heard from you I bought FTM and loaded my gedcom back ups to that. I had no problems. Everything worked like a dream. After a little while continuing on the new software I twigged what might have been the problem.
There are several Kings in the tree I am doing and so they would all be apparent I marked them with an asterisk in front of the name *Richard III , *Henry II *David I.. I had only done three when all hell broke out and I could not get back in. Wondering if this was the problem, I went back to FTB and opened it. It wouldnt allow me to access it as usual to delete the *. Because I am a masochist I decided to delete the * in FTM...reloaded the gedom to FTB and you would never know there had been a problem. Who would have thought *** could be such a problem.
My Win 7 64 bit system keeps crashing too. There were no problems until I installed the Premium version. There are lots of places on my screen where there used to be words, like the label below the Map and American Flag icons, and now it says "TODO". I did change the Smartsearch config file to off - mine was at 36, not 5 - and that did not help. I am going to try a reinstall, maybe that will help.
Is there anyway on FTB to only publish some of the albums? I see that in the Publishing Settings I can choose individual pictures to publish, but this can take a long time.
I have many pictures on FTB, but only want to publish some of them and I put them in one album. It takes too long to go and select each picture from the album individually. Is there anyway I can just choose certain albums to publish onto the family site?
Unfortunately, we do not currently have the option to choose specific albums to publish. You are correct that at this point in time we only have the option to choose which specific photos you would like to publish.
I tried to install FTB 4.0 (most recent version which I downloaded) into VMware Workstation 7.1, and when it starts to install it tries to communicate with www.myheritage.com and failes. It retries 9 times, and posts an error msg 'failed to download, error 200'.
All other applications work and communicate well, including all types of browsers that can successfully communicate with www.myheritage.com.
I tried it with an without setting the network proxy settings, but to no avail; it will not communicate.
I tried it with VM network settings of NAT and Bridged, and with the same failure mode.
