I need to be sure V9 will work with my present system. I have a 32 bit XP operating system. I believe my computer meets the basic system requirements as stated online. Does anyone use V9 on an XP system like mine without problems? I have no desire to switch operating systems at present, and I do not plan to have my software "talk to the internet." I prefer working offline so no desire to use certain features that "link."
Also, would you recommend GOLD over the SILVER edition? I am hoping to grow in my use and knowledge of features and think GOLD would be preferred, especially since I won't be able to upgrade later. Which version do you use and prefer? Is SILVER ok for most users?
I guess I am a bit squeemish about making a purchase days before it's discontinuation, but I have an older version that I love and wish I had upgraded sooner. My concern also pertains to the questions I might have as time progresses, but I can see this forum is very helpful. Also, I have acquired the 4 DVD set some time ago which should help also.I hate to pass up V9 if it is indeed superior to other genealogy programs.
Thank you all for your comments.
