File help

I have not had a chance to update my FTM software for sometime, but version 9 has always worked on my computer along with my files. Since getting a new computer I am not able to open my file sine reinstalling FTM 9 and receive the following error: 'File is either write protected or not a valid FTM file. Change attributes or use different file'. I do not know why the same file will no longer open. It is saved as as .FTW file.

UPDATE: I was able to open the file by simply moving it from the DVD to my desktop and then opening it in FTM. Thanks for the offers to help!
