New File = PAF closes
Posted by: Richard Silvester (ID *****3456) Date: September 01, 2004 at 09:13:23

I just installed PAF 5.2 on my office computer (don't worry, I am self-employed--the boss won't care) in order to review some GEDCOM data I was going to send to my daughter. When I clicked on the "open new file" button, PAF simply closed, with no error message. I tried various alternate approaches to getting a new file opened, including the file/new file approach, clicking on the introductory screen, etc. In every case, PAF simply closes.

I am fairly experienced with computers but have only occasionally used PAF. I realize this may be a computer, not a PAF, problem, but has anybody else seen, and hopefully fixed, this problem? I have reinstalled PAF twice so far. I am running a fairly new XP Pro computer, with the usual virus and other background programs. I have checked this forum and run several Google searches and have fund nothing. Any help would be appreciated.
