Good to hear from you again.The "I" that is reallya "F" was the confusion factor. The reason why it started working is that I added a copy of those files tomy Library while trying to find a solution. I don't know why it started asking for them now.I've used the program since Roots II, butI recently re installed UFT 3 on a new computer. I would think the files were installed. But, as I understand you then, I probably have not lost any data, but the Gedcom I created might have lost a tag of some kind if the files were not available.
