Okay, so nearly 11 years ago we got Rootsmagic 3. Our registration key has 8 digits. In order to open my Tree on my mac I need a 12 digit key...Any ideas?


This was the email,


"Thank you for using RootsMagic software. As requested, below are all registration keys attached to your email address.

SO did you download the current RM for Mac? If so, that would be version 7. A version 3 registration needs to be upgraded in order to unlock RM version 7.

Are you trying to install RootsMagic 3 on your Mac or RootsMagic 7? Each version has its unique key. For RootsMagic 3 you would need some type of emulator in order to install and run it on the Mac. There is RootsMagic for Mac (version 6 & 7) that install directly without additional help. 


If you are trying to open your RootsMagic 3 database inside RootsMagic 7 then you need to import it. All 36+ files that make up the RM3 database need to be in the same folder. Inside RootsMagic you use File>Import>RootsMagic (version 1-3).  Only version 4 or higher can be opened directly in RM7.
