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.

Address Book will not open on Windows 10

I am running AVG and when it did an update I again experienced the same problem. By checking the Compatibility Mode box in Properties it's running like a top again. Thanks for the follow-up resolution!

How to install new version

How i can install tha new version? I should deletew and install by the begining or just upgrade this that i have?

RE: How to install new version

It is enough if you just upgrade the current one. Everything will be good, whatever I always suggest to make a backup for any reason. You can read more how can you do this, in FAQ.

The error message
"hiba a konfiguracios fajl olvasasa kozben gas"
translates to
"configuration file error while reading GAS"

(According to Google Translate using Hungarian to English)

Perhaps there is a (optional) configuration file that can be deleted or (if the config file must exist) restored to default?

RE: C-1714

Yes, you can delete that configuration file, and if the file doesn't exist, then the program will create again. The file is: c:\Users\[user_name]\AppData\Local\GAS Softwares\Free Address Book\AddressBookSettings.ini.

The AppData dir is hidden.
But I suggest to install the latest version, which doesn't contain this bug.

Best regards

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.

RE: Feature Request

Yes, we want to add this feature too.

Thanks for your feedback.

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.

RE: C-1714

In the next version we will add a common local menu for every input field.
We will check that install problem.

Thanks for your feedback.
