Error: Cannot call friend function on object which is not an instance of defining class - when running the Mass Merge plugin

You may sporadically receive the following error message with the current version (1.1.0.8) of the Mass Merge plugin:

Cannot call friend function on object which is not an instance of defining class
This error is currently being researched and will be resolved in a future release.

Until the new version is released, exit Raiser's Edge to refresh the plugin. If you log out of The Raiser's Edge (File>Exit and Sign Out) and then log back in, you should be able to open the records again.
 

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Open the Mass Merge plugin
  2. Click Next Step
  3. Change Scope and Criteria if desired
  4. Click Next Step
  5. Click Name hyperlink to open the constituent record
  6. The error message may appear. It will not appear every time, but once it does appear, it will appear for every record until you log out and back into The Raiser's Edge
