I've been using FO9 for many years and have found it to suit my needs very well. However, I've just purchased a new PC and FO9 wont install as my new PC is a 64 bit system, whatever that means. I don't want to loose years of research. Any ideas?
Thanks
Pete

See http://forums.rootsm...s-7/#entry52695 on how I installed FO9 on Win 7. Better that you should upgrade to RM5 which will import your FO database without destroying it or losing data. RM5 Essentials will allow you to try it for free.
