Cant Open Ifamily

Post by Geordielass » Sun May 31, 2015 7:50 am

Good Morning,

Trying to open iFamily this morning and all I'm getting is an error message that tells me:

Unable to create ManagedObjectContext for /Volumes/Family Tree /iFamilyData/iFamilyData/Enids Family Tree .FtkSql.

When I click OK I get this message:

The file couldn’t be opened because it isn’t in the correct format.
The file might be corrupted, truncated, or in an unexpected format

Any suggestions please?

I am having this same issue today. Did you come up with a solution?

Which versions of macOS and iFamily are you using?

Latest version of iFamily works fine with High Sierra (and earlier).
