I am trying to import from Family Tree Maker 2014. I only see one choice for importing a .ftm file which says it is for 2008.2009. When I try it I get an error message "External dynamic -link library returns error "-1""


Same result with the backup file after waiting for it to extract it.


I probably could export to GEDCOM but I don't think that is acceptable. I think I would lose a lot of data, files, notes etc.

You have to export to a FTM 2008/2009 database and import that into TMG. You might try that. There are currently a couple of issues with the FTM 2008/2009 import and I'm waiting for a developer to look at it.
