  1. I had this issue once too: This may be your problem.... After much work not described here I finally figured it out. "I finally figured it out. I am using BitDefender as my security suite. When I updated BitDefender to 2020 edition it blocked HomeManage from accessing my secure folders. Once I saw that it was easy to allow HM access to the HM folders!" Back in action!
  2. I have consolidated my suggestions. The 2020 release of HM is out and it looks pretty good to me. Here I will update the feature requests I have made over time. If I state "No Change" that means to the best that I know. The feature may be implemented but I'm not aware of it. So, if you are aware of it being implemented please let me know and I will update my list. 5/21/2020: Update 1. Regarding pricing: Have a UNIT PRICE then multiply that amount by QUANTITY to get SUBTOTAL. No Change. 2. Regarding pricing: Store TAX1 and TAX2. Then multiply SUBTOTAL by each to get TOTAL COST.
  3. This is a very good idea!
  4. Any idea when HM 2020 will "ship"?
  5. I have consolidated my suggestions. I started this list back in September 2018 but I haven't heard anything regarding any implementation, or even consideration. 3/20/2020: Update 1. Regarding pricing: Have a UNIT PRICE then multiply that amount by QUANTITY to get SUBTOTAL. No Change. 2. Regarding pricing: Store TAX1 and TAX2. Then multiply SUBTOTAL by each to get TOTAL COST. Allow override, which is sometimes needed. No Change. 3. Regarding insurance: Store the insurance company and policy number information in drop down tables. Allow me to select one. No Change. Better y

  7. I accidentally uninstalled Home Manage. I downloaded the "Trial Version" and installed it. When I try to open HM I get a message "MS Jet Engine Cannot Open File "my data file. It is already opened exclusively by another user or you need permission to view its data (3051)". See attached pic. Don't know what to do. Thanks!
  8. Great news!!! Look forward to seeing the new release.
  9. What is the status of these suggestions? As dealio asked "Are any of these features on your roadmap for any future version of the application?"
  10. I have the same issue. Is there any place to see the latest version number? I have 18.0.0.13.

  12. 7. When the "APPLY" button is clicked, the app carries forward certain fields from the current screen. I would like to see Invoice/PO# data carried forward as well. It may be worth asking forum members for thoughts on which fields should carry forward. Thank!
  13. Another suggestion: 6. When a bar code search fails, do not load "NULL" into any fields. I have to go back and delete "null" if I don't have data for that field. Thanks
  14. Some suggested new features for your consideration: 1. Regarding pricing: Have a UNIT PRICE then multiply that amount by QUANTITY to get SUBTOTAL. 2. Regarding pricing: Store TAX1 and TAX2. Then multiply SUBTOTAL by each to get TOTAL COST. Allow override, which is sometimes needed. 3. Regarding insurance: Store policy number information in drop down table. Allow me to select one. 4. Regarding monitor/screen/displays: I have spoken to support regarding HD screens. The software needs to handle HD screens. I cannot read the buttons at the top and many screens the data displaye
  15. I have some suggestions for new features. Is there a process for that anywhere? Thanks
  16. Update: Since I have over 500 items most with extensive comments I was stuck. In the end I wrote a c# program using OleDB to connect to the HM database (a test copy). After several attempts I was able to load the descriptive data to the HM Comments field based on the Asset number. All my data was loaded into HM using the Import feature. The mapping worked well. BTW, I had been using "In Case of Emergency - Home Inventory". That company folded a couple of years ago. I continued to use it until I finally bit the bullet and searched for a replacement. So far I am happy with HM. My data has b
  17. This worked as expected!! Again, I am very impressed by the quick turnaround on these items! BTW: Is there a formal process for logging possible defects/bugs other than this forum? Many thanks!
  18. WOW!!!!! Yes it works! I tested with both vehicles and each pic came up and no crashes!! Many thanks!! I noticed that the version number did not change from 18.0.0.9.
  19. Thanks for quick response! I looked at the preference you mentioned and it was not checked beforehand. I then followed the steps noted above again. Once I selected Image 2, HM crashed. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help in anyway.
  20. HM -> Vehicle Property -> Item Pictures -> General Tab -> Select Image 2 or 3. HM crashes. Bug?
  21. I have added my two vehicles to HM using the Add Vehicle feature. I am able to complete the various fields as needed. However, regarding the Comments field, the "Enter" key does not function. I am able to type text directly into the field. I can also copy and paste text, but the "Enter" key does not work. The arrow keys work and I can add/delete text but not use the "Enter" key. Bug?
  22. Third issue I'm dealing with currently regards the import of item descriptions. I am mapping the imported item description to the HM "COMMENTS" field. Some of the data is being dropped so I need more research into this. Not sure why that is happening. I am able to cut and paste full descriptions into HM fine. I just have >500 to do! Will update later.
  23. Second issue was regarding the import of inventory pics from ICE (In Case of Emergency). I copied all my ICE pics to HM \AssetImages folder. And the ICE export file had proper file names per each imported item, HM did not pick them up. So, I manually dragged them to each item. That worked, but it was a long process (>500 pics).
  24. Solved the problem. I exported as an Excel file instead of csv and HM imported the data correctly. Note that I saw the data was correct BEFORE I mapped it to HM.
