    So I got a message that there was an update for Tabbles. It’s a little weird since it’s a Beta, and usually software will wait past the Beta stage, but the note says it’s pretty stable, so what the hell.

    After I install, I have a choice of SQL or the cloud and choose the cloud. Then when Tabbles starts up, all my tags are long. I panic for a bit and then finally figure out I need to import the database. Which is the sort of thing one would expect to a) happen automatically when you upgrade or b) at least be given a warning about.

    Then I discovered that there is a limit on the free version of Tabbles that wasn’t on the last version. There had been no warning about that. So I had to uninstall the new version and reinstall the previous version.

    That was a big waste of my time that could have been avoided if you had simply explained the nature of the limitations and database importing on the download page.

    I’m interested to hear the solution to your problem as well. I tried to download and install the newest 3.0 version but for the life of me can’t get the local SQL database set up. This server based model may be a good idea for businesses, but not for those of us who work from home in solo practices.

    Dear everyone,

    we’ll disable the update message soon.

    I’m not sure how you’re defining “soon.” It’s been four weeks and I still get the update nag everyday.

    In terms of setting up SQL, I’m not thinking I’d have a problem with it, I’m simply assuming that it would have the same limitation as the cloud DB, so there’s no point to it.
