Re: A Slight Laptop Problem

Ok Mike, I think after a week or so, my mind has become a bit fuzzy with one laptop giving errors on the plugin and the new one functioning correctly. I will make sure that in future I tick the restore registry box when reinstalling the settings. Is there a registry box tick on the plug-in for both ...

Re: A Slight Laptop Problem

Hi again Mike, I have managed to Restore FH7 on my new laptop. I ran the Restore Settings plug-in and I noticed that the Registry button seemed to be greyed out.....(or is it grey normally)? I had Program files button in green, and skip button. I did select the registry option..... Anyway, through a...

Re: A Slight Laptop Problem

It is important to understand that FH uses the Windows Registry for many settings instead of the ProgramData folder. Users have complained about the way settings are all over the place but not much as improved. The core standard Diagram Options and thus Box Conditions for Icons are saved in the Wind...

Re: A Slight Laptop Problem

Ok, following on from the other night. 1) I ran the restore settings (on my new laptop) for a previous version (after viewing the option), this brought back most things APART from my custom diagram box settings and icons. 2) I returned to my temporary machine and decided to upgrade to the equivalent...

Re: A Slight Laptop Problem

Thanks Mike and Matthew,

I’m afraid I have been away from my laptop since Wednesday, should be back up and running tomorrow.

I’ll try and hunt down a Windows Pro machine to see if I can resurrect the hard disk. Very good idea!

Thanks for your help.

Re: A Slight Laptop Problem

I presume you modified one of the core toolbar Diagrams to add the Icons. Not recommended. Sorry Mike, I am not sure what you mean by the first line.......... What I did was write a line of code for each icon event (that you kindly sent me on another thread) in the Diagram boxes area to change from ...

Re: re naming source/media files

Hi just stumbled across this.....and it looks interesting. Tried the Jan 2021 version and it worked very well on a media file. Is there any way of removing the id code at the beginning and the underscores between the descriptors in the final file name, because that would be exactly what I require. I...

No, I have set the path to where my Backups are... G:/ etc etc. Now I get a different error.... My backups are in my own path on C: Drive, plus on a G: Drive detachable for obvious reasons. I don't have full FH7 on my Dell (just trial) and no special settings either. I have many executables for FH s...

Re: Moving Project and settings from V6 to another laptop with V7

Hi Mike, Laptop was originally Windows 7, but upgraded to Windows 10 approx 18 months ago....so no non-standard settings I believe. You are correct about the Backup, Restore Settings, it is the first time that I have downloaded it and tried to use it. Not sure why it is not working. I assume then, I...

Re: Little help with DEA please

Thanks CVG,

I put a Birth Certificate through the DEA and it worked, I could see and reach the OK button in the bottom LH corner!!
So, it looks like I chose the wrong type of Certificate to do my first test, doh!

Re: Little help with DEA please

As ever, many thanks for all of your replies. The plugin downloaded and I then selected it from the DEA option, so I am using the Marriage DEA. Yes, Mark, CP may have put something in to guard against full usage....but as CVG has mentioned, I must be using it. CVG, I have tried maximising, dragging ...

I took a Marriage Cert and opened a Source, entered the details and then opened the DEA for Marriage. I then filled in the info as seen on the captured image. However, I canno...
