I just now upgraded to RM7. When I was in my file, I tried several times to change from Family view to any other view (by clicking on the tabs). The program would just hang up and I would have to go to Task Manager to get out of the program.

Please disregard the above. When I first clicked on the Descendant view tab, I had my file on my Root person. It was just taking longer to refresh the view than I anticipated. Just 160,000 people :-)

Where is your database being stored on your computer? Did you install RM7 on the C Drive in the Program Files (x86) folder?

Renee, that is where I installed it. But I just went back in and tried setting the root person to myself and it works fine. I think it was because earlier, the root person was my progenitor in this country and I have over 160000 records. It must have been taking quite awhile to refresh from "Family" view to "Descendant" view.

Maybe it was busy getting WebHints?
