I have a file from a friend who says it is a version 6.0 file that he can run on version 6.0, but will not open on later FTM versions. I have tried to run this file on both version 7 and version 10, but it will not open. What is strange is that the message that comes up says that this is from a "newer version" of FTM and therefore can't be opened. Is this normal or could he have somehow gotten this thing into a later file format ( he says that he tried opening it with versions 7, 8, and 9 with no luck)?
Assuming this file is in fact a version 6 file, several posts on this forum refer to using the Family Archive Viewer to change old version file types to a later version that can thenbe converted to the current version of FTM. However, all the referenced links lead to a page that results in the download of a program called ged2csv instead of FAV, even though the icon says its for FAV version 11. So, does anyone know of a link that will actually download the Family Archive Viewer?
