You were lucky to be able to use your old v8.5 at all on Windows XP. Version 8.5 was never XP compatible.
Many people encounter error messages using old versions of Generations on Windows XP, including the message to send an error report to Microsoft.
Version 8.5a works on Windows XP because it is XP compatible. Version 8.5a was released by Genealogy.com, the current owners of Generations.
Version 8.5 does not work properly on Windows XP becuase it was never XP compatible. Version 8.5 was released by Sierra, the old owners of Generations.
I hope that helps,
