Re: TMG 6.0 Trial Version Caution

Act II
Chicken Little, "The Sky is Falling on UFT"

Jim
This was the essence of the original 12/29/2004 message by a sometime user of UFT on Ancestry.com which prompted my posting a "Caution" about TMG 6 on this forum.

"I thought I'd "sample" TMG for 30 days and imported my UFT data base. I didn't realize that by doing that it, the data base would be lost from UFT. Stupidly, I had not backed it up for months.

My "memos" did not transfer over. They are gone."
(signed)

Jim, as further explanation, if the user had originally reported that the entire UFT project was gone, I would have ignored the message. But the user implied that only "memos" were lost.

This could have implied that Genbridge in TMG 6.0 had modified her single-byte font "memo" data from UFT's Foxpro 2.6 to some form of double-byte (or even Unicode? - Nah) format which made it unreadable in UFT.

Hence my cautionary posting.

But I should have just downloaded the TMG 6 demo at dialup speeds and tried it myself, even though a CD in the mail has been promised. Thought about it, but it was mid-morning, and it was dialup.

Or maybe I should have notified you, and TMG support and Myrnice by e-mail first? Come to think of it, I did. Twelve hours should be plenty of time for a disclaimer in this day and age. Guess nobody else thought it important. Or maybe it was a holiday.
Regards,
John
