Hi Brad,

 

From what I understand you should be able to copy the entire set to a USB stick, from wherever you copied it to originally, and even run it from the USB stick.

 

HTH, warm regards, Wim

I have entered 28 pens and wanted to print.  However, the program crashes every time.  My System Preferences (Mac OS X Yosemite) are set as above.  I really like this inventory and sure don't want to reinvent it on Excel or something, but it has to print.  Help?  Thanks!

I think we may have to contact jonro to get an answer here. I'll see what I can do.

Warm regards, Wim

She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Sorry that my response is so slow in coming. She passed away about three years ago and was a great companion. They are, however, not a dog for all people.


My shrink has a Rodesian ridgeback. That ridge of hair on his back makes him look mean

My database will not load or run on my new Dell Windows 10 PC after several years operating perfectly under Windows Vista. . Any one else having this issue?

 

Any potential workarounds or program updates in the works?

Thanks. I don't know if it's Microsoft's issue or mine. It loaded and worked properly one time, I added information and saved it. Now it will not open again. Frustrating. I may have to fix my old machine and use it with Vista as before. Back to my backup plan....

Have a great day!

It is built with an old version of the development environment it was created in, which likely is no longer compatible with Windows 8.0 and up.

There have been several Windows updates since you posted, but I installed it a month ago and it's working fine for me under Windows 10.

I get the same issue on my MacBook Pro under El Capitan. If I try to print, the program simply crashes.

The current version is rather old, so I guess that is to be expected.

 

I have been in contact with the developer. The things is that he would have to charge for it now, it is much more work than it ever was to get it updated, and keep it up to date.

We have not worked out a proper solution yet.

 

Warm regards, Wim

Many thanks for following up.

I believe the development environment was FileMaker Pro and I have FileMaker Pro Advanced 13 on my MacBook Pro so I have spent a few hours this morning creating my own simple database.
It lacks many of the features of jonro's excellent software but is quite adequate for my needs ... and at least now I can print! :)

I am also using the program in Windows 8 with no issues...

 

I have been using this program for years, long before I decided to launch a retail site.

I still use it to track my vintage items! No complaints- I highly recommend it!!

Would gladly pay for a version that runs on Mac10.9.5, and that would accept an import

from an earlier version. It was a wonderful tool. Really miss it.

There was a seminar at the DC Show last weekend about managing a collection. I did not know about it until the day after it occurred. There was a mention in the announcement of a possible update to the software, and I would like to find out more from those who hosted that session.

I'd pay for the update as well, even though it is running here on a newer Mac (first install so not having import issues now... can foresee a day in the future though.  'puters don't last as long as pens.)
