      FMPro won't open files

      Post

      I've been using FMPro 2.0 for years.  Until last week, I'd click on my billing files and FMPro would open them.  Now when I click, the FMPro title box appears and freezes.  I cannot access my data.  I have Windows XP Home Edition.  I tried to restore the system to a previous date that worked, but the message says Restoration Incomplete--Your computer cannot be restored to Tuesday, September 01, 2009.  I tried using my FMPro floppies to reinstall FMPro, but I still can't open the files.  I tried to uninstall FMPro but it is not listed under the Programs in Change or Delete Programs.  It is listed in All Programs. 

      Any suggestions on anything else I can try?  My computer expert is unavailable till the end of the week.   Thank you.

          You realize that your program is very old.

          You realize that a floppy install is very old.

          You realize that floppies die a very slow death, and eventually can not be read.

          You have a few options...

          Duplicate the floppies to new floppies. 

          Copy the floppies to the hard drive. If no errors... copy to new floppies. 

          Try a reinstall.

          You DO have a Known Good Backup of your database???
