Lost my timeline file(s)

Post by Peter Rawbone » Thu Mar 26, 2015 11:35 am

Help please

I've had a problem with my PC and now when opening my registered copy of Kith and Kin 3.2.1, receive the following "Unable to open Timeline tables in C:\KKPro3Data"

I've tried clicking 'View' and 'Options' to access the Timeline tables but to no avail. C:\KKPro3Data contains 60 files including dbisam.lck. My attempt to download a new 'set' of Timelines by following the instructions - right click and save etc - has not worked but I managed to save the txt file.

Also, when attempting to export (updated) Web pages, there does not seem to be an option to include a timeline of persons in the database - although I have done so in the past.

All advice / help gratefully accepted!

Regards
Peter

Oh yes, Firefox, Chrome and IE on Windows 7 Pro 64.

Hi,

The timeline files in C:\KKPro3Data are:
Timelines.dat
Timelines.idx
TLEvents.dat
TLEvents.idx

If these do not exist, please recover them from a backup of the C:\KKPro3Data folder or reinstall Kith and Kin Pro V3 to install the default timeline files.

Thanks as ever, Nick - all back up and running. Easy when you know how!

If I move the file from the C:\ drive to my D:\ drive (where K&K is located) how do I tell the programme that the file has moved?

Regards

Hi,
The location of the timeline files cannot be changed. They must be on the Windows drive (normally C:) and in \KKPro3Data.
