Feature Request

Hi. Love this program. Very - very handy.
One thing that would improve it for my needs would be the option to allow a contact to be a member of more than one group without having to duplicate the contact.

Virtual Groups

I like this idea except it could be a bit more extensive...

How about an added level to the Group Editor? In addition to editting the primary table "Contact Groups", it can edit a "Virtual Groups" table.
Instead of the record having a Group field in the Contact table, the records in the Virtual Group table would have a field link to the Contact record. So virtually adding a person to another Group just creates a pointer record.

A key difference should be in how deletions are handled. Several options would be nice:
1) by default, delete the Virtual Group table record without deleting the Contact table record;
2) delete the Virtual Group category and all associated Contact table records;
3) delete the Virtual Group record and any associated Contact table records that are not associated with another Group or Virtual Group (Delete all the contacts that are associated with a Club you quit unless they are also in your Friends or Family virtual groups) ;
4) delete the Virtual Group with checkbox list to delete associated Contacts record-by-record (Allow process to be partial if interrupted. So if you are deleting a Virtual Group of 60 contacts, you could kill the take to take a phone call after confirming the delete 7 of the first 10. When choosing to delete the Virtual Group again, you would have a list of 53 contacts to confirm.)

Another difference could in in the Edit
5) have a filtered checkbox list allowing Group or Virtual Group records to be added to another Virtual Group (again, you quit a club but made Friends there that you had never taken the time to mark also in the 'Friends' virtual group. Or, you want to designate 90% of your "CoWorkers" Virtual Goup into a new Virtual Group: "People I've Blocked")

Another nice feature would be to have valid date ranges for the entire Virtual Group or individual records... perhaps with a self-destruct date. So you could have a "2014 Club Executive" Virtual Group that is valid from 12/1/2013-1/31/2015 with a President, VP, Secretary record that points to Contact that are members of the Club. Likewise, you could have a "Club Executive" Virtual Group with 3 "President" records. One for each year but the record self-deletes at their end of term so they stop being burdened with club business.

"There is an opportunity to delete groups. Deleting of a group which contains subgroups too results in deleting all the subgroups and connections belonging to them."

Two thing are needed to improve this otherwise preatty good program.

One is to change the Hungarian word "Masolas" to "Copy". The word appears everytime I try to paste something into the Notes field. Right-click copy & paste is a convenience feature found in most apps. It took me a while to figure out what the word meant.

Two is to design the program so that it only has to be installed once. Currently you have to provide administrator right to all users on a computer & then each user has to individually install the program. You then have to remove administrator right from those users after install. That should be unnecessary & is a real pain for installation purposes.

Error

Ok I will try it and we will see. Thanks a lot!

RE: Address Book will not open on Windows 10

That fixed it, Thanks!!

Address Book will not open on Windows 10

I don't know what antivirus program you have but, I have AVG and had the same issue

trying to open Free address Book. It turned out to be a comparability issue with

Windows 10. The reason why AVG blocked Free Address Book was that the latest version of AVG is designed for Windows 10. So AVG will allow applications which are built for Windows 1O. Address book still has not developed a new build for Windows 10. That is the reason why AVG did not allow the application to run.

The solution is simple. Right click on the AddressBook.exe file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\GAS Softwares\Free Address Book directory, select Properties, click the Compatability tab and then click the box under Compatability Mode. Click OK to exit and then run Free Address Book. If the program executes properly you are done. After closing the program a pop-up window will appear asking if the program runs allright in the Compatability Mode. Click Yes and all is well.

RE: Address Book will not open on Windows 10

Windows 10 don't contains .NET 2.0 framework. You can install in: Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> "Turn Windows feature on or off" and in this window check the first option (.NET Framework 3.5 ...). I hope this will solve the problem.
