Requirements
On your main computer :

For Windows : launch the task manager
For Mac : Go to Apple menu > Force quit

On the remote device/computer:
- Check that the remove device/computer and your main computer are connected to same Wifi network.

Thanks a lot. I think it worked. Would it be better to set up a Homegroup network on Windows 10 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... -to-finish and then open my tree on it? Or do I have to go through the procedure you explained every time I need to sync from my laptop to desktop? Thank you!

Hi,

No need to setup a Homegroup network on Windows, just connect your devices the same Wifi network, for example.

The procedure describe how to share between 2 devices and points to check before sharing.
You won't have to follow it each time you have to sync your file between your devices.

Regards,

VĂ©ronique

I have 2 ipads and one i-phone. Everytime i try to receive file from my pc, i get "A transfer error occured". I have tried on different wireless networks, disconnecting bluetooth and nothing works.
If i try using USB, there is no attached device in Heredis, however the PC recognises it and will allow communication.

is this a corrupt Heredis - I am using ver 17.4 on the PC?

Never did work and I am still getting error messages whenever I save. Most of the time nothing saves. Time to find a new genealogy software program before my data becomes corrupted.
