You may need to delete .tmp files in the ProgramData folder or simply resume work and the program will gradually self-repair.
Attendant Manager is now in version 3.8 and is available for PCs only. The program can be evaluated as a fully functional copy for 15 days once every 3 months.

How To Upgrade top
Upgrades are supported for registered users only.
If you are running Windows Vista or later, you must log in as a user with administrator privileges to complete the upgrade.
To upgrade and resume with previous user data, uninstall from Control Panel and reinstall into the previous installation folder (or in any folder for Vista or later). To resume without user data, delete all files and subfolders in the program data folder (except AttenMan.key) before reinstalling.
Note: The program data folder is the installation folder on all platforms except Windows Vista or later, which likely use a subfolder of C:\ProgramData (you may have to adjust settings and privileges to view this folder). The folder appears on the program's Documents tab in User Settings.
