In Topic: App can't find the database

03 January 2015 - 01:40 PM

The instructions for downloading the initial file to Dropbox leave a lot to be desired.  I followed your instructions exactly, many times.  It was only when I read in this column about saving the file via the file menu  that it became clear following the instructions that the install of the database DOES NOT WORK unless you first save from the menu, not with the normal "back-up" RMGB file!  I spent 2 hours figuring out something that could have been done in 2 minutes.  Please let everyone know how to save the file so it is in the RMGC version of the database!



In Topic: Thanks, but no thanks

OK, so I just upgraded my RootsMagic to Version 7.  Now I find I have (if I want to use all that is available) to subscribe to MyHeritage for $119. a year.  So.....I did.....and see where they also have their own software available.  My question is:  What is the relationship between RootsMagic and MyHeritage?  ...and why would RootsMagic link with a competitor who also sells genealogy software? 



I would also like to know what the advantage is of having both RM7 and the free MyHeritage Software.  This is not a complaint,  just looking for some information and direction.
