Installing Legacy 7.5 or earlier on a Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 or Windows Vista computer

• Make sure that Legacy 7.5 or earlier is installed only to the default C:\Legacy folder on your hard drive; if you don't some features might not run correctly or give errors.
• If you have installed Legacy 7.5 or earlier on Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you should set the system's User Account Control to "Never Notify” if you have trouble unlocking the Deluxe features or experience other problems in the program, such as Legacy not retaining new information or settings. (Adjusting the User Account Control is not necessary for Legacy Family Tree 8.0.)

     (1) Please open the Control Panel, and click on the User Accounts icon.
     (2) Next click on Change User Account Control settings.
     (3) Move the slider bar to the bottom, Never Notify; then click OK to reboot your computer.

• If you have Windows XP or an earlier version of Windows, we encourage you to upgrade.  Microsoft is no longer supporting Windows XP.
• If you have earlier version of Legacy, we also encourage you to upgrade because you may experience some compatibility related to Windows (for example using different user accounts and a non-functioning Help file, etc.)
• We are no longer fixing problems in Legacy 7.5 or earlier, such as compatibility problems with the Family Tree at We can't help you with these issues.
