    Hi there I have searched a lot to get information regarding your problem but I am unable to find details about Family Tree Maker 2005, and then I am talking about compatibility details. The 2009 version seems promising however. But I got a good suggestion, depending on how much you want to spend on buying a new Windows 7 copy. I suggest you buy Windows 7 Professional Edition, because, you’ll always save money on the long-run. So for the long-term buy Windows 7 Professional, and there’s only one

    reason and it is this: In Windows 7 Professional you can take advantage of the XP Mode feature.

    XP Mode is a new feature in Windows 7, it allows you to virtually run Windows XP based programs directly (integrated) into the Windows 7 Desktop environment. You will NOT be able to use this feature in Windows 7 Starter or Windows 7 Home Premium. The only Windows 7 editions that support this are:

    Windows® 7 Professional

    Windows® 7 Ultimate

    Windows® 7 Enterprise

    This is the only solution that I got for your problem and hope that might be helpful for you. Please tell me about it whether it works for you or not. I am looking for your feedback.

    Most features on Family Tree Maker are unaffected by the newer versions of Microsoft Windows, Windows Vista & Windows 7. However, certain aspects (like exporting a view, book, or tree to PDF) will not function without an important update for your copy of Family Tree Maker. This versions of Family Tree Maker is only supported in Vista or Windows 7, at 64 bit compatible.
