Question about Broderbund Family Tree Maker 11 (382648) for PC

1 Answer

I bought Family Tree Maker V-6 years ago, and used it on my previous desktop computers, I just installed it on my current HP Desktop having Windows 7 as my OS. The problem is that whenever I open the program it continually prompts me to register the program. I did this years ago on my old computer. How can I get around this problem?

Register it again. Even trough you already did this, porting the software from its program files folder does not always works fine. Windows' register has these registration saved, and your new PC doesn't.

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.

How do I transfer my Tree Maker files from my PC to my iMac.


Family Tree Maker has a Mac version of their software available on their website.
This link also provides some possible solutions for your situation for converting PC version to Mac.

http://ancestry.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3916



If you have any reason to not switch to the Mac version of Family Tree Maker, or have other PC software that may not not be available for Mac, there is an easy solution for this as well, but does require purchasing a copy of Windows. You can install Windows as a second operating system on your Mac to support those applications not compatible with Mac. This can be done using the built in "Bootcamp" utility on your Mac. This allows you to boot to any version of Windows or Linux, as well as your Mac OS. Another method is to install "Parallels" for Mac, which also allows you to install multiple operatings systems, but with the added ability to Mac OS X and Windows simultaneously.

Try saving a copy of your family tree as a .GED file. for example "familytree.ged" onto a USB drive or disk, then put said disk in your MAC, open family tree maker and try and import your tree.

Files using the .ged extension seem to be the most portable.

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.
