Hopefully the used FTM 2006 works and is not scratched! If they kept it protected in a case it should be fine, I'm keeping my fingers crossed I have no problems. I'm running FTM 2005 and don't want to upgrade past 2006. All my genealogy friends who use the later versions of FTM don't like the changes. I want more note space that's one of the reasons why I want FTM 2006. I', running Windows 7 on both my computers and know I'll have to do the fix so I can print pdf files, but that's okay!
