Denise, thanks for your reply. I am thinking that Win 7 does not support the
.ged or .gdb file extensions. You are using Home Pro which does have an "XP
Mode" feature that is probably enabling you to open your program. I am
thoroughly confused and trying to get used to this new computer, email, etc.
I was hoping to have everything ready for next week when I have long lost
relatives coming for lunch. I know there is an answer out there somewhere.
I'll let you know and please get back to me with any other recomendations.
Thanks again, Eileen

Subject: [GENBOX] New Computer
I had no problems when running Genbox on my old computer with Windows XP
Pro. I copied the files onto a flash drive and onto my new computer that
runs Windows 7. I cannot open the files which are apparently not
by the new OS. What to do? Do I have to upgrade to Windows Ultimate where
can go into XP Mode? Is there any other way to do this besides spending
bucks for the upgrade? Any help would be much appreciated.
