We are aware of a problem with the new Windows update (8.2.5) when creating reports. We have tracked it down to an issue with a DLL we updated when creating the installer. This issue does not affect the Mac version (which doesn’t use the DLL). It only affects users who downloaded the Windows update BEFORE 7 AM Mountain Time this morning.

We have updated the installers with the original DLL.

If you have already downloaded 8.2.5 for Windows, go to:
and click “RootsMagic 8.2.5 Installer” to download the new install, then run the downloaded file (make sure RM8 is not running when you run the installer). Mac users do not need to do this.

If you haven’t already downloaded 8.2.5, just check for updates as usual.
