CD ROM

Postby CORCORANJ » Fri Aug 08, 2014 5:41 pm

Hi this might be an old question. I gave the research a rest for couple of years, now I have more time. I have tried to install the 2006 cd rom, it installs, but wont start saying it has compatibility problems with windows 7.
Is there anyone who has solved this problem, which I cant believe is restricted to me.
regards
John

I'm not sure what sort of CD you mean , is it one of the bonus content discs that used to come with the magazine or do you mean family history software ? Either way are you able to right-click instead of opening and then select Properties and then Compatibility and then select the version of Windows that the program used to run in ? I'm not an expert but here's a link which may help :

Failing that you might want to try emailing the team for advice.

Sorry it's the family tree software. Many thanks I will try that.
