PAF 3 and 5


Valued Member
I have previously used PAF (Personal Ancestral File) 3 on another computer and now have it installed in a laptop with WIN 98 and it works fine and I enjoy using it.
I have PAF5 (the latest edition) on my main Windows 7 Premium Home Edition computer and find it less fun to use! (Less fun to use PAF 5 Not windows 7!)This may well be down to me, but in PAF 3 the Search command in the program works fine and will bring up at least the surname I enter. I can't get PAF 5 to bring up anything, it just leaves the individual panel as it was!
If you are successful using the Search command in the PAF 5 program any hints what to do would be welcome please? :confused:
