[Solved] Run-time Error 6: Overflow
For no reason I can discern, today as soon as I opened Birder's Diary (v4.1) I got this error message. If I click anything at all, the program then shuts down. I'm now completely blocked out of all of my birding data - many years' worth. 🙁
Ok - got onto Todd's system today. I believe the problem has to do with a Registry read due to all the changes in Windows and how this works and that the version of BD that both Todd and @bdawson66 are using are v4.1 and v3.7. I tinkered around with removing Registry settings for BD but that didn't fix the issue. So I installed v5.1 (Build 101) onto Todd's system and it works fine, as I expected it would.
So, this is the solution. If others are having this problem and you are are earlier versions of Birder's Diary (pre v5.0 probably), then I am happy to upgrade you to v5.1 for free in order to solve this problem.
Same here...just sent you an email. I'm running 4.0.177
Update: Today had our first customer with RTE 6 (Version 4.0) on Windows 7. All previous issues had been with Windows 10. Updating to v5.1 solved the issue.
