« on: Sunday 10 May 20 12:54 BST (UK) »
Hi  can anyone assist me please,   over the years I have used Family Tree Maker 2012  I have made a copy on a USB,   thankful that I did as the Pc crashed,
I have tried to load the disc but I now find windows 10 will not support the disc and does not recognise it
Can anyone recommend a free download that will read my USB please  frustrated

Kind Regards

Try RootsMagic on a COPY of your ftw file (don't want to risk damaging what you have).  Rootsmagic is available as a download and there's a free version.  If it won't open the file there are lots of helpful people on here who can probably convert it for you.

Stay safe

Do you mean that the CD will not read in your the drive of your fresh PC? Is there an error message?

Sometimes Windows mentions that certain software is known to cause problems. It has a list of things where there ought to be a newer version.

If it announces something of the "disk read error" type or a weird one mentioning "inpage", then the disk may be damaged.

If so, it is worth trying to clean the disk. Place it label side down on a clean flat surface. A tea towel on a table is ideal, as it makes sure that the label side does not suffer - that is where the data actually sits, just under the label. If there are obvious scratches on the "plain" side, it is possible to polish them out, but it is not an easy job.

Moisten a tissue and apply a dab of washing-up liquid to it. Wash the "plain" side of the disk with this. Wipe the detergent off and let the disk dry. Use a dry tissue if you are in a hurry.

Then have another try at the install.

I have known people label their CDs by writing on the label with a ballpoint pen. That is an almost perfect way of destroying them, as the tip crushes the part where the data is stored.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

I have been let to believe it is not compatible with Windows 10, one reason why I am continuing  on with Windows 7, I have the same programme, a lot older than yours Broadway, I am loath to buy a new prog that I might struggle to understand now FTM was so easy to use

Oh, bother, I don't really want to start up another programme  at my age, makes me wish I had done that a long time ago

Back to the drawing board

Good luck broaway
