What the heck? I'm 'Britman'. Never showed in the above posting! Anyway I put: 'Rootsmagic 7 won't open rmgb or rmgc files'. Why won't they open?

Do you open RM7, click 'open' and select a file or do you 2x click the file from your windows map (if it opens with another RM, right click then 'open with' and select RM7). If a method does not work, maybe try the other one.

 

If you can not open them from RM7 (through open menu) without any error message, I would uninstall and reinstall it.


Rootsmagic 7.5.9.0 with a lot of SQL queries (SQLiteSpy) and a bit of Family Historian 6.2 (tree view and map)

.rmgb files are backups of the database in a zip format. They are meant  to  be opened using File>Restore, not opened directly, since they are not  in a format the  RootsMagic can read using  File>Open.
