Is Family Tree Maker Version 16 Compatible with Windows 10? I can't get it to load. Gary Snyder

HP Notebook, i7 core, 64 bit

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No, I have not, but Microsoft does it frequently.

I am willing to buy a newer version of FTM, but if I do, will my old data be still available?

Family Tree Maker 16 is not compatible with Windows 10.

The data base file should be able to be imported to a newer version of the software.

Even if it is not able to be imported as is, you can change the file type to one which can be read by the new software!

what can I do? Is there a version of FTM which is compatible with Windows 10? If so, what is it? If I get a new FTM, can it read th data produced by Version 16 using an old version of Windows, probably Windows 95?
