Getting info from older discs into a newer computer

I have the 1997 Deluxe Edition 3 of FTM. I downloaded all my tree info onto 4 cds about 6 years ago. Now I have a newer computer with windows 7 installed and cannot get the information off the cds, it tells me I have to have a certain program to retrieve the information but I don't know how. Any ideas

SOURCE: I am getting an error message when trying to add stuff

Not too sure if problem is with operating system or the FTM program. Check if you have enough disk space. You may also need to check that your OS works properly, there is a free program for this http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html
check your system, that might improve.
Its also worth to check for errors when the FTM is running, In Menu item EDIT run the option check for errors

SOURCE: MY OLD COMPUTER WINDOWS XPS

The short answer is yes, Family Tree Maker 2010 is fully compatible with Windows 7.
The Family Tree Maker team has been working with Windows 7 for several months-even prior to the release of Family Tree Maker 2010. Since the "Release to Manufacture" (RTM) version of Windows 7 was released last August, we have done additional testing in our labs as well as with alpha and beta customers with no indication of incompatibility. Family Tree Maker 2008 and 2009 are also compatible with Windows 7.
As a point of interest, it may be helpful for people to know that we continually test Family Tree Maker with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
If you find a problem while running Family Tree Maker on your operating system, the best course of action is to contact customer support which can usually help you identify and solve the problem.

Operating on Windows XP. Family tree maker8 won't open


1.Requires it to be run in Windows XP Compatibility mode.
2.Ftm.exe is not signed aka doesn't have a publisher prompting user account controls in Windows 8. (Security issue)

Compatibility mode for FTM 2012 in Windows 8:
1.From desktop, right mouse click on FTM Icon on the taskbar
2.Hover over "Family Tree Maker 2012" and right mouse click again to get Properties
3.Click on Properties
4.Choose Compatibility tab
5.Under "Compatibility mode", check box "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" Side note: after utilizing "Run compatibility troubleshooter" this is the resolution I got.
6.Click okay and test to see if program opens properly.

Note: due to the ftm.exe not having publisher info, each time I open file, I get security prompt to allow unknown publisher to make changes to my computer. Family Tree Maker must address this issue.

I have a Vista (Windows) version of Family tree maker. I want to transfer my info from that version to a Mac version. Which versions will be compatible for the transfer??


There is a Family Tree Maker File Migration Utility that you run on the PC to convert either FTM 2010 or 2011 files to FTM for the Mac. Here's the link to the info on Ancestry.com:

Sim City4 Deluxe Edition-D:/ not a valid Win32 application.


I also have Sim City 4 Deluxe edition, and the package came with 2 CDs. Which were, the download and installation CD, and the gameplay CD. Now if you put in the Game Play CD without putting the Download and Installation CD in first, then that message might come. And if not, then the Gmae Play CD might be damaged, you can try rubbing alcohal and blowing on the CD, but if that doesn't work, see if you still have a warranty and try replacing the CD.

Hope that helped!!!!! Please Rate!!!!!!
