Recently I was contacted by someone who had an issue with the genealogy software, BIRTHWRITE, which I had written about in my post dated October 9, 2008. He is having an issue which I invited him to explain in his own words, hoping that perhaps someone out there has some information to help him in his quest to find an answer. I am posting this on his behalf and so I can provide any updated information regarding this genealogy software I have listed.
I originally set up my Genealogy program using Birthwrite from the developer named "McDonald" (not certain). I then copied it to Myheritage.com but when I use Myheritage it doesn't seem to have copied all the info I had on Birthwrite. I then wanted to go back and reload it but I learned that I was unable to open my application of Birthwrite, getting an error message saying:
Component " COM DLG32.ocx or one of its dependencies not correctly registered; a file is missing or invalid'.
I tried to locate the developer to no avail and was told I would need a copy of the Program to reload onto my computer in order to open my file.
I was hoping there might be someone who can help me.
I originally installed the program on my old XP which I believe was 32 bit and have since replaced that computer, I believe with a 64 bit. I did have them use the old XP operating system however.
Since I am away from that computer for another month until March 20th I am not able to check to see if I am correct in my description.
I was hoping someone out there may be able to provide me with a copy of the Program and I would be happy to remimburse for all shipping and costs.
