Re: Viewing saved data on CD in Family Tree

Rosemary,

For the benefit of others, it is impossible to open a .uds family file directly from a CD. You need to copy the family file from the CD to your hard disk and open it from there.

This is because Generations needs to be able to read *and write* to a family file. Generations cannot directly write to CDs.

Regards,

Trevor Rix
