CoinManage 2015 UK

Recommended Posts

Have just added 29 (2012 Olympic 50p) coins to my collection and decided to add a column and delete one that I did not want and the program crashed and then restarted.

Admin said in my topic coinmanage-2015-uk-changing-images "On the cr4ashes, does this happen on coins which you have entered quite a few of the same variety? this crash has been fixed and will be rolled into the UK version this week."

I have tried the adding a column (short description) and deleting one (mm) and the program crashes and restarts.

When the program had restarted the new column was there and the deleted had gone.

Have run the update.

After update should my collection still be available (its empty)

Do I have to do a restore after an update to get it back.

It might have been a good idea to tell me to do a backup before doing the update as there are non

Other database programs I use automatically backup.

On checking in preferences

backup manually is set

Or

Backup every (15) runs of CoinManage. the 15 is already filled in

There is no mention of backup or restore in Help Topics

to check if it was just a problem on laptop

On desktop I installed the 1st release of uk 2015

Set Paths to my E:\My Documents\Coinmanage UK 2015

Added 2 coins

£100 Pound Silver Big Ben 2015

£20 Pound Silver St Georege and the dragon

Made a backup and installed the new version

I now have no coins in my collection also they are not in the CoinManage Database.

Did a restore my collection now has 2 coins

But in CoinManage Database most of the coins added with the new release have gone.

Uninstalled

installed the 1st release of uk 2015

Left the default path to C:\Users\Mike\Documents\CoinManage UK\

Added 2 coins

£100 Pound Silver Big Ben 2015

£20 Pound Silver St Georege and the dragon

Made a backup and installed the new version.

This time everything is OK

Decided to make the backup path to my H:\Backups as I think it is better than being on the C: with the program and working files.

The program does not think this is a good idea as no matter how many times I tell it to use the H: drive it backus up automatically to the C:\Users\Mike\Documents\CoinManage UK\Backups.

If I do a manual backup from File Backup Database the program backus up the files then crashes.

Going to try this on the Laptop now

Another try this time on Laptop

Uninstalled

Installed 2015 uk 1st release

Told program to install to

D:\My Documents\CoinManageUK\CoinImages

D:\My Documents\CoinManageUK\Data

D:\My Documents\CoinManageUK\Reports

Added 2 coins not in CoinManage Database

2015 £100 Silver Big Ben

2013 £20 Silver George and the dragon

Install 2015 new version

All data in my collection missing

data for 2 coins I added has also gone

Uninstalled

Installed 2015 uk 1st release

Let program install where it wants to

Added 2 coins not in CoinManage Database

2015 £100 Silver Big Ben

2013 £20 Silver George and the dragon

Install 2015 new version

All data in my collection missing

data for 2 coins I added has also gone

After a lot of installing uninstalling

Telling program where I want files to go

Letting the program decide where it wants

Program will not install if antivirus is running

The program will only let new update correctly.

If the files are where it wants and antivirus is not running the first time after updating to the new version

The winner is the program knows best so why have the option to put files somewhere you want.
