From searching on Google, I gather that Ancestry Family Tree is the name of the free version of Family Tree Maker.

So your question really has nothing to do with Personal Ancestral File (called PAF for short).

I don't know what the AFT error message means, but I think you would have more success in asking your question in a different forum. Firstly check out the help offered on the web page above. Then, if it doesn't help, try the AFT forum.

You may need to uninstall the AFT software and re-install it. If you can't resolve your problem, I suggest that you download PAF5 from It is free, powerful, easy to use, and I find it totally dependable.

But if you can't export a gedcom file from AFT, you would need to enter your data again.
