PAF 5.2.18 shutting itself down
Posted by: Debra Dowdy (ID *****9345) Date: February 04, 2007 at 17:37:43

I imported a GEDCOM from an old Family Tree Creator program. All is well except for one problem no one can help me with. When on the "individual" list, one particular man and his wife are listed. However, if I try to click on "family" or "pedigree," the program shuts down. The message is "PAF has encountered a problem and must shut down." (That's paraphrased.) I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program. I took my stuff to the local LDS library and they checked it with Insight, but found no explanation. The happens a second place in this same genealogy and also in another genealogy I keep. The problem is frustrating the dickens out of me and bringing my searching to a total halt until I can figure it out. Any ideas?
