Hi Richard

I think you need to upgrade your file rather than just trying to just open it directly in the Generations program.
These are the instructions we send out with version 8.5a:

If you previously used Reunion for the PC or Generations v4.2 (including Easy Family Tree), run the new Generations v8.5a, click on EasyTree, click on the Upgrade button, navigate to the folder on your hard drive where your family file is saved, click on the Open button, and a copy your files will be transferred to Generations 8.5a. Please ask if you would like help with this procedure.
