DateTime Error When Loading Program
« on: February 28, 2012, 05:59:46 PM »
There seems to be a Leap Year bug!

I started seeing this error message today (29 February - in Japan) (see attachment).

First I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the software, but to no avail. Then I changed the date on my computer clock - Bingo! Error gone.

The software will still run, but you'll have to to click through a series of annoying error messages. At least everything will be right as rain tomorrow.  :D

Hi,
  Yes - I just found out about it and it is actually a problem I caused when resetting inventory dates to a default date.  I'm implementing a long term fix as well as checking to make sure it does not cause problems tomorrow.

  You can cancel to suppress the warnings and I believe it will run correctly for today.

  I will post a patch if necessary.

I get the error too, but when I hit "cancel" all works fine.

Hi,
  Hit the cancel button when the error comes up and it will fix itself tomorrow.

  See this thread...

  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Cheers,
