is the 2018 FB working for anyone or is just me? Seems after installing it doesn't create the ..\Roaming\KCFB R2\2018\FBDB2018.db' and I have tried that on 3 workstations so far. Kiwi support is non existent for me - it has been years since anyone from there bothered to respond to my tickets

I have finally upgraded from previous generation FB. I am struggling with it. For 3 months I couldn't get it to work, the DB file was somehow corrupt. I eventually located the offending file + renamed it so FB could create a new one, and now FB R2 will fire up. But it's a pretty interface not intuitive. I am pining for my previous version.
