Error - family table cannot modify a read only table

Post by declan1mc » Fri Mar 24, 2017 9:41 pm

I have installed kith and kin pro v3 on windows 10. I previously ran the program on windows7 and developed my tree database. I have now installed the software on windows 10 and I am getting the following error on start - "Family table cannot modify a read only table". I choose OK and then it presents a window saying "Updating tree area display" which sits at 0% progress for ever. I can only stop the program via the Task manager - End task button. Any ideas why this is occurring?

Hi,
Most likely Kith and Kin Pro does not have permission to access your database files. Try running it in administrator mode.
The other possibility is that the database files have been flagged as read-only.
