I currently have Family Origins 9.0 operating on XP. That computer is dying, and I now have a new computer with Vista. FO 9.0 will not load on the Vista computer.

I also have Roots Magic on both my old and new computer.

I also have been able to transfer the 9.0 data bases to the new computer.

Alternate 1 - At the time I got the XP computer I think I was successfully able to load 9.0 by tricking the XP to think it was my previous computer's operating system. Is there a way to do that with Vista, that would allow me to load 9.0 to my new computer.

Alternate 2 - Is there a way to load the FO data base into Roots Magic, on my new computer. I understand that there is some loss of information when this is done.
