Thank you for clarifying it. We have a problem with Windows Vista on old versions of Family Tree Builder (build 126.96.36.1990 and below). The problem is that the default installation path is c:\program files\myheritage and users who accept the default on Vista may run into permissions problems later that prevent saving the program's configuration file. The symptom you are seeing is that the data language of the program is not being saved properly, but the same would apply to any non-default configuration setting you'd like to change. We solved this in newer versions by change the default installation folder on Vista to be away from c:\program files.
So my suggestion to you is the following: download the latest version of Family Tree Builder 3.0 from our site, which is 188.8.131.526 at the moment, from here. After doing that, uninstall your Family Tree Builder. Don't worry, it will not delete data, it will only remove program files. Then install the new version 184.108.40.2066 and be sure to install it into c:\myheritage and not c:\program files\myheritage
This should address your problem and you will find that the new version also runs much faster on Vista. Please try this and update here with the outcome.
I'm trying to research some early Judao-Christian dates and make some sense of it all with FTB, however years before 100AD get the error message "not recognised". If you enter years as free text, the tree shows "?" and doesn't calculate people's ages.
I imported a GEDCOM file and then made a Book Report. It looked great but there were a couple of things I wanted to edit. Some of the information though I cannot find in FamilyTree Builder.
In the Book report it correctly says certain people resided at different places at certain dates, but I can't find where it is listed in the program.
I've looked at VIEW.. PLACES and under the facts for these individuals and there is just nothing there about there residences, but I know it's gotta be somewhere because it shows up in the Book Report.
I have the same problem. If I remember right I put these facts in under Misc, now they don't appear in the facts list and I am unable to do anything with them at all. They do appear in the Book Report though.
Please someone reply to this and help us sort out this very irritating problem.
I am using FTB 3,0,0,820 with Windows XP (automatic update from Microsoft site).
When I try to export one branch by selecting several ( /10) ancestors, FTB always crash and when creating the ged file and the size of the ged file is almost the same as the ged for my whole family tree.
I have built a tree with a number of people of 536.But to upload a tree I needed to delete at least 36 people. I have deleted 50 people but the last person still has the ID-number 536 and the web-site refuses to upload it. How can I solve this problem?
How do you download the other verson?? I also have myself as well as others married when we are not! are you able to transfer the tree i have now to the other one?? if so how do i do it. I already have 100 people in my tree and dont want to start over
