The only two things that you need to watch for are that the original Generations Grande Suite (v5.2) came out before Internet Explorer 5 was released. It has a support file for I.E. 4 and will overwrite the similarly named file for I.E. 5. Sierra has a patch for that (ggspatch.exe) available through Download that patch and run it after installing GGS v5.2 but before rebooting the system.

The second issue was that v5.2 was written before large hard drives became common and will misread the drive space on large drives (reporting disk full when trying to create reports). Download the free upgrade from 5.2 to 6.0 from the same site. That resolves that problem and various other bugs.
