System Date Changed
Weight Loss Program relies extensively on your computer's date setting. As you enter the information on your weight and daily caloric intake and expenditure, each entry is associated with a particular day and stored in the Weight Loss Program database.
If (intentionally or accidentally) you set the system date to an earlier date, or if the system date changes due to technical problems, this will interfere with the Weight Loss Program functioning.
Running Weight Loss Program after System Date Was Changed
If the system date is set back, Weight Loss Program is unable to load the data about your weight, intake and expenditure from its database because it will appear to the program that some of these data are entered with a future date.
If this happens, Weight Loss Program shows the following error message box:
The first option lets you quit Weight Loss Program without making any changes so that you can check the current system date on your computer. If the date is incorrect, adjust it and restart Weight Loss Program.
If you choose the second option, the program will delete your goals, body measurements, intake and expenditure data for the dates which conflict with the current system date setting.
For example, if you have been entering information to Weight Loss Program from January 1 to March 1, and then the system date is changed to February 1, the program will clear the data for the period from February 2 to March 1.
Restoring after System Date Was Changed
If (intentionally or accidentally) you change the system date to an earlier date, and then decide to restore the information from a previously created backup file, the program shows the following message box:
The first option lets you stop the restore process and check the current system date on your computer. If the date is incorrect, adjust it, run Weight Loss Program again and retry to restore your data.
If you choose the second option, the data will be restored but the program will delete the data that falls into the period between the current system date and the date of the backup file.
For example, if the date of the backup file is May 31 and the system date is changed to February 1, the data from February 2 to May 31 will be deleted.
If you encounter any problems restoring your data, please do not hesitate to contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org
