MainType 9 crashes trying to add a new font folder

Post by Susanne B » Tue Mar 17, 2020 9:30 am

Hi,
we installed MainType 9 on Windows 10 1909. The program starts and you can activate and deactivate Fonts. If you want to Add a new font Folder, the Software close after clicking "Browse". The Explorer, where you can choose a Folder, does not appear.
Do you know the Problem?
Thank you
Susanne

Are you using the latest version of MainType (version 9.0.0.1207)?

Yes I know that… :)
but I found it out: in the FreeVersion it only shows 9.0 in the About box

in the licensed Version the About box shows: 9.0.0.1203 (64 Bit)

Check for updates should work in either case. Since you have an old version, it should tell you that 1207 is available.

The Changelog will also tell you the latest version and the changes made since 1203.

Thank you for letting us know. That is a relief, as I honestly had no clue why that could still happen ;-)

Enjoy the software!
