FMPro won't open files
I've been using FMPro 2.0 for years. Until last week, I'd click on my billing files and FMPro would open them. Now when I click, the FMPro title box appears and freezes. I cannot access my data. I have Windows XP Home Edition. I tried to restore the system to a previous date that worked, but the message says Restoration Incomplete--Your computer cannot be restored to Tuesday, September 01, 2009. I tried using my FMPro floppies to reinstall FMPro, but I still can't open the files. I tried to uninstall FMPro but it is not listed under the Programs in Change or Delete Programs. It is listed in All Programs.
Any suggestions on anything else I can try? My computer expert is unavailable till the end of the week. Thank you.
You realize that your program is very old.
You realize that a floppy install is very old.
You realize that floppies die a very slow death, and eventually can not be read.
You have a few options...
Duplicate the floppies to new floppies.
Copy the floppies to the hard drive. If no errors... copy to new floppies.
Try a reinstall.
You DO have a Known Good Backup of your database???
