Error..unable to open database file

Post by w0ls » 02 Oct 2019, 03:34

Been using log4om for a long time...no problems. All of a sudden today while working stations I went to log a contact and got..."error saving qso....unable to open database file". The log file its going to is correct at the bottom of the log4om display. I am able to see all my contacts when I press f8. What could be wrong??

Thanks,
Harry

I found the problem...after I thought about things just before bed time I remembered I had made a change that was recommended with windows 10 security involving folder protection. That change prevented log4om from updating the database!! I removed the change and all is well....sorry for the bandwidth.
