First, my whole group has been using this program for a few years, and we all love it.
I've been using this generator for the last few years, and never updated it. The whole time, my whole group has been saving their sheets to a shared dropbox folder, using the Data Path option. The other day someone's computer did something, and corrupted it all, so I had to reset the whole thing. I wiped the dropbox folder, and we all uninstalled our copies of the generator.
Then I downloaded the newest version as per the link at the top of this topic. It all seemed to be working, I can write characters and save them fine. However, when I close the Generator completely, the next time I opened it, I found that all our old characters had shown up. on the Characters panul, with the basic blank portrait, and a blank white box for the description. When trying to open or remove them, I get a pop up saying 'Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click quit, the application will close immediately.' When I continue, none of the buttons work. The characters I've made on the new version are still there, and if I select one before anything else, it works fine, for a while, then it will randomly give me the same thing.
I've scanned the entire computer and dropbox to make sure there's no remanence of the program, then redownloaded it. Still have the problem. I've done this a few times. Doesn't seem to matter where I tell it to save, default location, a folder on my desktop,
I've attached a copy of the crash(?) report, and incase it helps, we went from version 188.8.131.52 (8/24/2015) to version 184.108.40.206 (4/7/2017), we just never considered the fact that there might be a new version. If there's any more info I can provide, let me know.

EDIT: Just went to start trying to guess at how to fix it again, the characters that I'd said still work, now have the same problem as the old ones.
