Old Software

I have upgraded my computer and thought I had everything transferred, but when it came to reinstalling Ultimate Fmily Tree, discovered the CD is unreadable (too scratched).
Looking at your message board there may be no hope as I merely copied the directory I had the project stored in, rather than go through the backup process that I didn't realise existed. (I think I had version 1 anyway and didn't notice a backup option on that).

I have files with extensions .PRO .DBF .FPT .CDX in the directory.

1) Is this enough to open the project again?
2) If so, can anyone e-mail me as an attached file a version of the software that will work on Windows XP. (I would buy it, but as it is now unobtainable asking for a copy of someone else's can hardly count as piracy!. Size isn't a worry. I can then download any patches myself.
3) IF this isn't enough, can folk recommend an up-to-date package - preferably UK rather than America - from all the many on offer nowadays?! At least I have the main branch and all the descriptions/dates as an RTF download and I have what I think is a reasonably complete GED extract - will be a shame to have lost all the unconnected people I was going to join in though!!
