The recent Microsoft update to Windows 10 (version 1903) affects the CaseFinder library function. The Library window will open, but when you click on a database in the Library list, the CaseFinder program will either quit, or it might display an error message referencing run-time error 372. In addition, the problem may appear when you search in a Code, Constitution or Rules database, and click on a result to expand it.
The recent update to Windows 10 has changed the version of a module that CaseFinder depends on to display information in a "list" view within the program. Microsoft has a history of sending an incorrect version of this module in previous updates but has released corrections in the past.
We have developed a new version of CaseFinder that eliminates our dependency on this module. We also anticipate that Microsoft will fix this problem, as it has in the past; however, the timeline for the fix is uncertain.
The latest CaseFinder DVD contains the files needed to update your version of CaseFinder.

Optional: The help system in CaseFinder was also effected by Windows update. The csfhelp.gml file contained in Win10Update folder can also be copied and pasted into the CaseFinder program folder. Please follow the same steps as above.
