[Solved] Runtime error 48
I am currently running version 5.1 and was trying to clean up my disk and uninstalled version 4.1. I also have version 5.0 as well but I did nothing with it. When I tried to run version 5.1 after the uninstall of 4.1 I got an error message that said it could not find the database so I copied a saved one into BirdersDiary/data and tried to start 5.1 again. This time I get "Runtime error 48 error loading DLL". What do I need to do to get 5.1 up and running again? Why can't I uninstall previous versions that I am not using?
The database in the /data directory is the one that I copied in from a saved one so it has todays date and time which is just before I sent you the first post so before the installation. Just to be clear, I did not perform a "restore", I just copied it in from a backup.
the saved database that I copied from is 11/2/2020.
Files in the /data directory:
Yes, it would be helpful if you could get on. Locations as well as sightings are missing from the database and my 2019 ABA taxonomy is gone too.
Thanks a lot.
See ya tomorrow.
I just tried a "restore" from Birder's Diary and now all is well. I guess I learned my lesson. So sorry for bothering you with this.
Thanks so much for your quick response.
Yes, Jeff, the restore had the path to the most recent backup in the BirdersDiary directory.
Thanks for the update.
