HI, I had a copy of Family Tree Maker 11, from 2003. I cannot find the disc, but it is installed on my laptop. Is there a way to download the software, so I can put it on another of my computers? Or is there a way to save and transfer the software and all the work I have done? I have tried to find another copy, but have not found it, Is there a special place to look? I have tried ebay, the mfg., Amazon? Thank you

OK, believe it or not ,, I just found the original disc!!
Now, my question is,,, how can I save the software and all the work I did.
Is there a way to send it to a family member who does not have the software??

Thank you

Now you could use Dropbox, Imgur or similar and send them the link, or put it on DVD/USB for them to get it on their machine.
PS. They would have to have the same software.

So, there is no way to transfer the software and the information at once? Or did I misunderstand. Is there any way to download or copy the software? I contacted the company and it is no longer available. I did purchase it in 2002-3

(NT) you would need a CD ripper program
