After the update; I still have the same problem. I cannot proceed with filing my taxes b/c the program won't allow me to open the tax file.
I did get this error message after installing the new update: No TaxDataStoreHandle fournd for a TaxDataStore, whatever that means.

For me, everything worked fine until the update.
After update I am getting 'No TaxDataStoreHandle for TaxDataStore'
I had already done 1.5 hours of data entry and was nearly done.
Am seriously considering not using this product anymore.

That's what I'm going to have to do as well. I just went diving into the file itself, thinking that I could copy the header from last year's return, but the entire file is devoid of data, just hex code "00". It looks like every byte of data was replaced by a digital null. This is a very big flaw in the program. It does not appear to make temporary backups while having a file open.
