Re: Transfering Millenium backup to v8.5a

Hello Eugene,

Generations v8.5a will install itself completely separately from any previous version. You install the v8.5a CD, and then copy your .uds family files to the new Program Files/Generations folder. That's it.

It is your choice whether you retain the old v5.2 installation or uninstall it.

It is impossible to open Generations .uds family files directly from a CD or a DVD. You need to copy the .uds family files from the CD/DVD to your hard disk and open them from there.
