Michael,

You seem to be the one to talk to when it comes to problems. Sorry to bother you with another.

I started using Reunion many many years ago. I started out with a Mac version (I'm not sure which issue but early on)
Then at some point switched to a PC version of "Reunion 4.7" I believe. It did everything that I needed, of course ignorance is bliss. Recently my hard drive went SOFT or SOUTH. Somewhere I had accumulated a copy of "Easy Family Tree 4.2 " by Sierra home, on a disk. In looking at the back and information enclosed it looked to be the same as my previous PC version of "Reunion 4.7". So, I sucessfully loaded it into my new computer with XP operating system, and it works beautifully, except for one thing. It does not have the ability to create charts (or supercharts).
I'm not complaining to hard now but charts are such a big help to visualize your family that I would really like to be able to have them available. I don't have a floppy drive on my new tower (cpu), so I went to the Library and was able to copy my original floppy of my reunion 4.7 to a flash drive and then come back and tried to pull out the chart part of that program or the whole program but it refuses to let me do that. (it say's that I am missing (LEISTER.DLL). Is there some sort of patch or other way to add charts to "Easy Family Tree 4.2" ****GO EASY BECAUSE I'M NOT A REAL COMPUTER TECKY PERSON**
