Re: Detecting emulator/Wine by plugin

Mark, in my backup plugin I have to keep track of Registry Keys to use RegRead/Write in emulators. HKCU\Software\Calico Pie\Family Historian\2.0\Preferences\Emulator-Compat-Mode was the only key in FH V6. HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Calico Pie\Family Historian\2.0\Preferences\Emulator-Compat-Mode was ...

Re: Media Record links to Header Records

Helen, the plugin checks the =LinksTo(...) function count versus the links the plugin has found. That =LinksTo(...) count is the same as the number shown in the Links/Citations column of the Records Window. About a year ago I reported a problem with the =LinksTo(...) function in ticket #999527: In F...

Re: AgeAt() in Years and Months

You may be correct Paul. What are your input values to the calculation and where is the resulting age to be displayed? Presumably, you know that any Fact Age can be entered in Years & Months directly. So it can be entered directly from the 1921 Census details. Thereafter, the 1921 Census Age can sim...

Re: Timestamp error in Backup and Restore Family Historian Settings Plugin

Ideally, the non-plugin scripts created by the new Backup and Restore FH Settings plugin (or other methods) should utilise identical folder, file & data structures so they are compatible with both Windows and the Linux/Mac emulators. That should be perfectly feasible as the data is identical in all ...

Re: Timestamp error in Backup and Restore Family Historian Settings Plugin

Mark, the emulators are essentially the same for Linux and Mac, all being based on WineHQ. ( See the KB Running Family Historian on Wine/Crossover/PlayOnLinux/Mac ) Yes, I guess a Windows Registry backup could be used to restore on Linux or Mac, but the reverse would be a challenge. Also, most Linux...

Re: Timestamp error in Backup and Restore Family Historian Settings Plugin

As I mentioned elsewhere, the problem with emulators (last time I checked) is they do not support Reg Export/Import. So the script must perform a Reg Read/Write operation for each separate Registry key. The set of Registry keys is derived from Reg Export operations run on a native Windows PC and bui...
