Thanks for your suggestion. I am able to run FTM 2010 on my new computer with windows 8. The only problem is that I have to right click the icon on the desktop and click "run as administrator" if I want the program to automatically check for updates. I'm ok with doing that until I get a new version of FTM, which I don't think I'll do anytime soon - I'm happy with FTM 2010. Again, "Thank you".
