Well I fixed the Root Person issue. I simply neglected to make a new "Root Person" after importing the GEDCOM.
Still can't get the media files to be correctly linked to the person or events even though there is a folder "Pictures" that has the media i want to display.
maybe the issue is that the media needs to be in a specific folder for the viewer version of RM to work properly. Hopefully someone understands where the media needs to be stored to work on the "CD".
