Legacy Charting - important update instructions

This message is important to read only if you at any time installed the pre-release edition of Legacy Charting AND you installed Legacy 7.

Important Update Instructions:

As you may know, Legacy Charting's Pre-Release Edition will expire on June 15, 2008. When you installed Legacy 7.0 Deluxe edition, Legacy was supposed to "override" the Pre-Release edition of Legacy Charting with the Deluxe edition of Legacy Charting. Well...it didn't. We've identified the small glitch and have corrected it.

Therefore, if you installed both the Pre-Release Edition of Legacy Charting AND you installed Legacy 7.0 Deluxe Edition, you will need to download a special update.

Before June 15

If you do this before June 15, all you need to do is open Legacy Charting, click on the Tips & Updates tab, and click on the button in the Updates section to download and install the new update.

June 15 or after

If you do this on or after June 15, when you try to run Legacy Charting, you will receive a message that directs you to the Legacy Charting website. There you will find a link to download the update.

I ran into this exact problem ... and solved it easily by "updating" the free version to my deluxe version. Glad to know that it wasn't something I had done wrong ... but managed to do right!

I love the new features in Legacy 7 that I've discovered so far. I've been a faithful user since version 2 and will never turn back. Only other observation I have is that with 9800+ names in my database I find that lately it is running very, very slowly when I bring up other screens.

Thanks again!

I think Legacy charting is a fantastic programe, I have used it several times. I found that second spouses were not included, maybe I just missed something,

I have a similar comment with respect to the new charting program. It is a fantastic program and I use it in many different ways as I enter data. I would like to be able to show at minimum a second spouse though, even when there are no children out of a second or third marriage. Is this possible now or is it being contemplated in a later release?
