I have used RM in the past with version 2 .... I know, that's so old!   Well, after careful consideration I'd like to upgrade to RM 7.

 

1.   Can anyone confirm if it can be done with such an old version?

 

2.   Do I pay the upgrade price of $19.95?

 

3.   Will I need the serial number from RM2  as I cant find it and I have no copies of the purchase as I think it was 2005? 

 

I did start the process to upgrade but on the purchase page it came up with a ref number on the left-hand side of  .... see below ... SO  what upgrades will i get, version 3 or version 7?  I don't want to have to pay for an upgrade more than once.

1. In RM7 use File>Import>RootsMagic (version 1-3) to import your RM2 database. It will not import a backup. You will need to extract the zip file if that is all you have. You can do that outside of RM. 

 

2. Previous version users pay $19.95 to upgrade, that includes you.

 

3. You do not need RM2 installed to upgrade or import to RM7.  Strictly the honor system when purchasing.

 

Any new purchase will give you the current version. RM0003 is simply the product number in the shopping cart.
