Re: Cannot open PAF after uninstall and re-install

Beck,
Things are certainly not going well for you. It sounds almost as if PAF failed to install properly. Windows should recognize the .paf extension as belonging to PAF.

To be on the safe side, I would start by using Windows to make a copy of your PAF database.

What happens if you start the PAF program and then use the File menu to open the database?

What happens if you use PAF's File menu to restore a recent backup?

Please let us know how things went. If the photos disappear, we should be able to quickly bring them back. The main thing is for your data to be safe.
