O/S: Windows 7, SPK 1
App: Goldmine version 5.50 10424 April/2001
I'm in the process of moving my applications (including Goldmine) from an older PC (with Win2000) to a newer one (with Win7 and VirtualBox/XP). Although Goldmine works fine on the VM/XP side of the computer, I would prefer to use it on the Win7 side, however I am having a problem.
I want to open one of my existing databases.
I go to "File/Open"
I get the "Contact Set Databases" dialogue box.
It shows two databases:
Description Access Database/Location
Common Contact Set Public C:\Program Files (x86)\Goldmine\Common
Demo File Public C:\Program Files (x86)\Goldmine\Demo
These two databases come as part of the initial Goldmine installation.
The following buttons appear at the bottom of the dialogue box:
(5) Open File
I can open either one of these databases with the "OpenFile" button.
However I want to open one of my own already-existing databases.
Normally you would click "Attach" and the wizard will let you browse to the location of the database and will let you add a Description for the database and let you choose what Access Rights to give, etc.
The problem is the Attach button is greyed-out.
Likewise for the Delete and Property buttons.
I also tried the following (after right-clicking the program icon), but to no avail:
(1) Run as administrator
(2) Troubleshoot compatibility
As I said before, it works fine on the XP side, but I would prefer to use it on Win7.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
