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.

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.

Error

''The installer was interrupted before Free Address Book could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again''

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.

Address Book will not open on Windows 10

I recently upgraded to Windows 10. I downloaded the latest release of the Address Book software and installed. When I click on the shortcut & attempt to open Address Book I get the indication that's it's executing then nothing. I look in Task Manager and it shows in the Background Process section with no activity. Can you help? Thanks!

Continuation

I use Win 10, so I have .NET 4.6, which should supercede v 2.2. The config file expects connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Users\Athena\AppData\Roaming\GAS Softwares\Free Address Book\AddressBook_2.0.mdb". But there is no GAS Softwares directory in C:\Users\Athena\AppData\Roaming.

RE: Continuation

Do you get any error message? The Win 10 use .NET 4.6, but it is not enough. You have to turn on .NET 2.0 and 3.5 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 your problem. If not feel free to ask.

Get: "Error happened during data base connection(cannot get back connection string)!

RE: Error on first opening software

This message is coming, when the installation can not write the database file location into your config file. It is possible to do it manually. Please send me an email to freeaddressbook@gassoftwares.com , and I will send you the instructions, what you have to do.

Thanks
