Can anyone explain the following phenonomon I am using both Generatons 4.2 and Family TreeMaker 11. I have two computers using ME and XP. I can run a successful backup disc of my Generations program, but it will only open in FTM. When I view the disc in my computer A drive the icon shows as a FTM disc, although it has been copied from Gen4.I have maintained duplicate Generations programs (on both computers) and both of them will not let me open the file in Generations. Both discs show as an FTM icon, and will only open in that program. I also have Gen 8.5, but I still prefer to use 4.2 as it has some features I think are simpler to use. I hope I'm not going to have to dump it?
Incidentally, the 8.5 backup seems to show correctly as a Generations disc.What is happening? is this a Gen problem or a FTM problem?
