hello bvanora,
Unfortunately it doesn't appear that your software is compatible with windows 7. Windows 7 does have a compatibility mode which is suppose to let the program run as it would in an older OS. However a little luck is needed, as well as the hardware requirements. such as windows 7 pro, and up. 2 Gigs of memory, and "cpu hardware virtualization support" (although there is a work around for virualization)
To try running your program in compatibility mode right click on the programs short cut, click properties, click on the compatibility tab, check "run this program in compatibility mode", click on the drop down menu and select windows xp, also click "run this program as administrator", and click ok.
If you get an error, along the lines of "Cannot start windows virtual pc" follow the link provided, and download the appropriate update for your computer 32/64 bit. This is the work around i mentioned for virtualization support. So as long as you have win 7 professional or higher, as well as 2 gigs of memory you should be able to run your program.
Good luck

I have a new computer and when I tried to install my older Swift Family Ancestry program, it wasn't compatable. My new computer is an Acer-5734Z-4838 Laptop with Intel Pentium processor T4500, 3 GB DDR3...


If you can get the programme to install ( this was designed for windows 95-98) you might be able to get it to run in compatibility mode. I assume your laptop is running Vista?
To do this, install the software ( might need to install "as administrator"),

Once installed, click on the programmes shortcut (right mouse click) and select "properties", click on the compatibillity tab and check the box "run this programme" select windows 98 or 95 and click apply

See if that works

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:

MY OLD COMPUTER WINDOWS XPS RUNS FTM VERSION 10 FINE. MY NEW PC HAS WINDOWS 7 WILL NOT PERMIT INSTALLATION IS THERE A WAY TO INSTALL VERSION 10 ON WINDOWS 7?


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.

Swift FAmily Ancestry v 2.0


I found a few places you can buy it, though none of them seem to specify if it's version 2.0.

You can purchase and download it directly from here: http://my-buy-it-now.com/products-page/downloads/swift-family-ancestry-family-tree-maker-downloadable/

Or you can order boxed versions to get shipped to you from these places:
disks o plenty
Amazon


Also, it looks like Swift Family Ancestry creates files in gedcom file format. Many other genealogy programs can open that file format, so if you found a different program that you liked better, you may be able to open your file with that other program, also.

My Family Tree designer software and VIsta OS


I checked the Cosmi website and could find no newer versions.

I would suggest you go with this newer version of Family Tree Maker.

http://www.familytreemaker.com/About/Default.aspx

It is quite extensive. Lots of features. Also, it is associated with ancestry.com. On-line tutorials are provided. Reasonably priced too.

Thanks for using Fixya.
