Your FTM 9 files backed up on your CD should have the file extension .FTW

eg "myfile.FTW"

Using Windows Explorer copy these files from the CD to a suitable folder in your new computer.

Install and register FTM 2012

Now from FTM 2012 in the Plan view go to New File>Import from an existing file and navigate to where you have saved your .FTW files.

FTM 2012 will open the file and convert it to FTM 2012 format. Repeat for each of the .FTW files

You will end up with all your files available in FTM 2012
