When I open the PAF program it looks normal. I actually can view and edit the one PAF chart that is open. But when I try to click on the word File, or the folder icon, so that I can open one of my other eight PAF charts, the screen gets somewhat greyed out and I get the pop-up that says:
Personal Ancestral File has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. ............... The only thing I can then do is click on the "Close program" button, or click on the X in the upper right of the pop up. Clicking on either closes PAF. Then when I open PAF again, the same thing happens. The same one chart is there, but I can't change to another.
The program never "notifys me if a solution is available".
So with my other eight charts I'm dead in the water. I can't do anything with those eight PAF charts and notes. I can't even get to them.
