WS 3.5.4/ Greyed out items.
« on: September 27, 2012, 07:56:08 AM »
Recently tryed to restore a program written on an old computer and then for convenience reinstalled WS 3.5.4 on my laptop.   I then found that Backup, Restore, Convert, and Import were all greyed out. On Steve Hoopers (Huntron UK) advice I created a dummy program and this sorted the problem and was able to restore programs wriiten on WS 3.5.4 and older. looks like you have to have an existing program before you can restore another program.

The old V3 software used multiple databases and relied on index files to keep track of the System, Board, Section, etc. order. On a new install, the system index file does not exist yet so items that relate to writing a new system are disabled.
The most important troubleshooting tool is your eyes.
