Re: DNA Fact - RM4 New feature


I'm pretty much of a "lite" user of RM so I don't think I would be having any questions, anytime soon. When I tried out the beta version, I used my smallest family file, which is less than 100 persons. The only problem I had was getting the RM-to-go utility to work as I thought it should. When I ran the utility, it installed the RM code and copied the database to the thumb drive but it did not copy the image files and documents. In the RM3 version, when I created a shareable cdrom, it copied all of the image files and documents. I could manually copy the images and documents to the thumb drive but I could not change the path for the images so the program was still looking for the images on the C: drive. That's not a very portable implementation. I thought I might have solved the problem by using relative paths i.e. "." and ".." but it seemed troublesome and I felt either I was doing something wrong or the utility did not work in the beta version.
