I am using Version 3 of Rootsmagic. I believe I downloaded the program last year and now want to put it on my other computer; however, I have no disk. Can anyone help me?

If you downloaded it, you downloaded the file: RM3setup.exe.

If you can find that on your old computer, copy it to the new one and run it to install RM3.
It may not be the latest version, but you can download the update patch to make it 3.2.6 by going to RootsMagic.com and clicking updates/patches.

If you can find your registration code, you will have to enter that and your registration name to make it the full program. Otherwise you will have to bother the RootsMagic Technical Support team to get the number.

You could also just download it directly (from the computer that dos not currently have it installed) and then enter your registration info:

Here's a few links:
