Hi Jean,
I don't remember it. It was a few months ago, and then I tried a few times, then gave up on it, and then I tried again like a few weeks ago and since then it works perfectly fine.

Hm i thought i saw something funny in that code when the housesystem is not porphyry nor whole houses, but on second sight it's ok again, the module can only switch between these housesystems.
So i have no idea where that out of bounds comes from. >:(

Yes, I think I will simply have to wait for the program to debug itself in one of the next updates, as it did with the Relocation function. And if it fails to do so I will reinstall it eventually altogether. I've tried the most recent update and it still fails to open this window altogether. Thanks in any case.

Hi there. I'm an amateur 'astronomer' and there is a very easy rule that can be employed with both planets and the sun. And the same goes for all the others. You hinted at it in your last comment. And it all relates to the Apparent Magnitude of a planet when close to the sun, and their height above or below the horizon in terms of altitude.
I'll just give a list and then you will decide if it works for you. This is based on my observations and the literature I reviewed on the subject when I educated myself about observing the night sky.
The dawn and dusk has three phases, and they all depend on the negative altitude of the Sun,
The indigo hours, where the Sun is -18 degrees below the horizon (they begin then), the blue hours when he is -12 degrees below, and the golden hors when he is -6 degrees below the horizon. For all planets to be observable without interference from trees and such it is desirable for them to be at at least +2 degrees altitude. Now depending on their apparent magnitude we can construct a list that will hold generally true (with some variation) across the year and longer planetary cycles.
And this is the list:
Moon: she above the horizon +2 degrees the sun below the horizon -4 degrees.
Venus: +2, the sun -4
Jupiter: +2, sun -5
Mercury: +2, the sun -7.5 (in the case of Mercury it actually ranges between -6 and -9 depending on the solar phase).
Saturn: +2, sun -8
Mars: +2, sun -9
Uranos: +10, sun -12
Neptune: +12, sun -18 (theoretical, based on the Bortle scale which allows for true keen eyes and exceptional sky viewing locations to observe Neptune with the naked eye, with limits pushed to apparent magnitude +8.5 or so).

As you can see this list allows for the brightest objects, the crescent moon, and Venus to be observed helically rising or setting in the golden hours, along with Jupiter, especially when he is in his perigee. The next triad, Mercury and Saturn and Mars to be observed in the blue hours, and in the case of Uranos the limit is the indigo hours and for Neptune the limit is the indigo hour itself.

If you use the altitude of the sun and the object in question as a basis for being under the rays and the helical rising and setting, it's much more realistic than the simple ecliptic longitude rule which can be cheated drastically by the inclination of the ecliptic and the ecliptic latitude of the object in question.

Tried your data, off course it just works here. I'm afraid this is some hard to track issue.
Ed greek has changed, do you still get an error? On which line?
The extra relocation module is very simple, just asks for a place and recalculates the horoscope. Do you remember getting some error message from it?
Can you try the stuff that does not work on another pc?
The feeling i have is that for some reason your pc just does not agree with planetdance or at least not with some modules.

Hi to both of you, and thanks for the reply, I can give you a chart example data, but as I said in my last message, I get the exact same issue irrespective of the chart data that I use (for example if I use the current transit data under the Startup function, or with any other chart I have in my library). This is not the first time that a module or submodule becomes inaccessible to me, some months ago I couldn't use the Relocation function at all after an update (under the Horoscope/Extra heading), and then after months now I can again, back then I didn't say anything because that function I use less than the one reported in this post. So here is a chart data that I check often enough, 1982, 03, 01, 14:00 Arad Romania. Take care.

The dutch help was more comprehensive, here's a translation.
The idea is that you create a database with events so you can compare these by means of progressions / transit to a radix.
Using the big buttons you can change the time for the radix one minute forward or backwards.

Use Database to create or use other databases. Standard is 'correction.db'. 
Use Add to add events to the database so you can compare those times to a radix.
Use Delete / Change to delete or change these events.

Birth time correction.

The best result to correct a horoscope according to Wim van Dam - writer of the book 'Correction of the birth chart' - by releasing primary cuspen in combination with secondary planets and transits on the radixhoroscope on the day of the event.
It must be concrete events, whereby the (PR.) ASC or (PR.) MC must receive one or more aspects.
If the birth time is correct, these aspects will fall within 1 degree.
If the orb is greater and also occurs with other events, then click on the black arrows at the bottom right to adjust the birth time.

Click on the frame at the top right of the circle on Transit.
Then look at the aspects with the Radix.
Click Wheels / Aspect to view the size of the orb.
Then click SEC / Prim.
In the left column you now see the SEC. Planets with the pr. Cuspens.
Pay particular attention to the aspects of PR. ASC. and pr. Mc. (The 2 last columns) on the Radix and to aspects of SECPlanets on the R.Asc and MC.
Then look at their orbs by clicking on Wheels / Aspect again.

This analysis gives an accuracy of up to 1 degree of the MC, i.e. a birth time to approximately 4 minutes accurately.
One degree shift from the MC stands for approximately 1 year. (This can make a big difference with for instance Tr.Pluto at predictions)

N.B. Please note that the half squares (45 degrees) and one and a half squares (135 degrees) should be included, because they often play a big role according to Van Dam.

For an even more refinement of the birth time, Van Dam advises use annual harmonies. (Read his aforementioned book for this).

For information: According to Van Dam, as opposed to the primary cusps, the primary planets are a dangerous area and secondairy cups move much too quickly to be useful when correcting.
This was published in 1984, the opinion could be changed by now.
