In Topic: Status of RM7 New wrapper for mac

Yesterday, 08:33 PM

I guess I'm a pretend beta tester for RootsMagic.


I used to work for a software development firm, so I know one "deadline" was "Thursday". You just didn't mention which week.


Hahahaha on the "mything mystical native Mac Version ™".


My complementary Win 10 Enterprise under VirtualBox poofs in about 86 days, so I'm hoping the Mac OS version is released sometime between now and then. The RM7 that runs under VirtualBox and Win10 Enterprise doesn't seem to fair much better than the current Mac-based version. Weak monolayer SQL and the usual FamilySearch interface hickups/lockups.

Virtual Box Guest additions - How to locate - 




BTW, when I use Win10 Enterprise for FamilySearch the popup web page is small and slow so I revert back to the Mac side fo things and I have much better joy using FamilySearch there. Running Win10 with RM7 I still get a nasty lot of "access violation" errors. Quite frustrating, so FS still does not play totally nice with RM7 even in a Windows environment. Database access seems to be faster though.

I found the dreamweaver download to work well, so I do not understand why after my testing that RM did not grab the ball and run with it. Perhaps the license was too costly.

Small software company, thin resources. I just like being on the bleeding edge and I appreciate what RootsMagic has done to help me resolve family historic myths and legend and bottlenecks and barriers in research threads. What sold me was the one-button duplication resolver when the family was still using PAF. I'd still like to see RootsMagic use relational database technologies so the program can be multitasked. SQL Lite is so 1980s.

Because we can reveal the issues we are having with the SQL database. We are the yellow canary in the mine. If you don't like beta testing to find and quash bugs, then don't participate in this forum thread.
