You need to Open your database files in RM.
Or restore a backup or import a gedcom depending on how you transferred your data files to the Vista hard drive.
You will also need to go to Tools>Options>Folders and set the default folders to tell RM where to save any new file types.
And reset your options at Tools>Options.
And you may need to change the paths for your linked multimeda if the paths are not the same after you copied them to the Vista hard drive.

If you use:
FILE --> SEARCH FOR FILES
RootsMagic will search for your databases on the new system's hard disk drive.

As in the past I can count on you folks to get me up and going. For the last 6 months I have been having PC problems not related to XP. I bit the bullet and bought a new PC running Windows Vista. All of my files were transfered over from XP to Vista. When I tried to open Rm, I was told I need a key code. I wrote to RM and got the key code. and entered it. Now when I click on RM all I get is a blank screen. Any guesses on what my problem is and how to solve it? Any help would be appreciated. Joe
Thanks for the tips, but I still bring up the files.
