This program is compatible with windows 7.
Not sure what your problem is but just place the install cd into your cd drive and it should be recognized. Then run the .exe and it will set it up for you.
That's the easy part the hard part is trying to find all of your relatives details, good luck with that

I have the 2009 version and it works without a patch.
When you start the install it will show the path it wants to install to, you need to change that (by clicking on Browse) and then navigating to c: program files and installing it there.

Can you do a screen shot or screen snip of the install error / problem you are getting so we might see what it looks like ? How many CD, DVD drives do you have.

I have used Family Tree Maker since V-7
