I have a new laptop with Windows 10 and downloaded my rm ver. 6 from the website..ver.  I let it install in all the defaults it requested (as before I had to set up a MY programs to install it in for Windows 7).  I am reading about a .reg file..do I still need that file or is it included in that version?  It seems to be opening and running fine so far without it..

Yes you still need it if you are using RootsMagic 4, 5, or 6 under Windows 10:


1. Download the .REG file from http://files.rootsma...Browser-Fix.reg
2. Run the .REG file to add the necessary entries to your Windows registry. It will display several scary warnings. Just keep telling it that “yes”, you do want to make the change.
