Generation, v. 5.2, Snapshot SE, XP upgrade problems
Posted by: Dale Rice (ID *****0336) Date: October 10, 2007 at 13:54:28

I bought Sierra's "Generations Family Tree Grande Suite version 5.2 software" in 1998. It is the most valuable software I have on my computer. The EasyTree program works just fine, but the Snapshot SE program displays strangely and incompletely. I have been using this suite of programs very heavily since 1998. I probably have over 1000 documents & images stored into software photo albums, through this Snapshot SE program. There is no XP patch for this program, because Sierra sold off programs, like this, to Broderbund. Broderbund discontinued the final version of the Snapshot SE program, which was called Snapshot Express.It was included with the Liberty Edition, v. 8.5a suite of programs. This program was, for all practical purposes, the same as Snapshot SE. Snapshot Express will not work with XP either. Naturally, microsoft has useless solutions for outdated older programs, that worked just fine on Windows 95 through Windows Millennium. As a result, I temporarily reverted back to my Windows Millennium operating system. Does anyone have a patch for this program? Does anyone know; Is there a program in the marketplace, that will convert older programs into Windows XP? Sincerely - Dale Rice
