... If you are where I think you are in the web site, I think they want you to buy the CD. That's why you can't "open" it at the web site. It's an advertising ploy.
... I used to buy these things, but quit. People increasingly submitted just 1 or 2 generations or even less, just a name or two, hoping to get a nibble from someone else researching the same name, like "Smith"! The first CDs would have large family trees with many generations, often treasure troves for the searcher. Not the later ones.
