Sorry to be chiming in late, but I just found this forum.
DO NOT delete your PAF 3 program when you upload the new version.
You can work with both. 3.0 will always be a 1/2 screen, but I will not give up being able open a file, hit "2" and see each individual's information and whethere they have notes or not. Invaluable when you download someone elses gedcom and need to clean strange notes. DO NOT change "Sources" from the 3.0 program, but all other functions work just fine.
I have also found that I need to "Scan for problems" on the 3.0 utility as well as "check/repair" on the 5.0. Each one catches something different.
5.0 does not have "possible records problems" and makes different lists.
You can see the same file from either program. I have 2 icons on my desk top; 5.0 and 3.0. I can go to 3.0 and open my Smith file, close it and open 5.0 and look at the same file.
