New computer and old Family Tree Maker don't mix

I've been very happy with my Family Tree Maker 2006. I've been using it, and previous versions of Family Tree Maker for over 10 years and they have all worked well for me. Recently, I decided to buy a new computer to replace my older, slow desktop. The new one came with Windows 7. Unfortunately, Family Tree Maker 2006 is NOT compatible with Windows 7, so for several weeks, I've been without access to my research. Of course, that is when several new contacts posted to my website with questions. Today my new Family Tree Maker 2011 arrived. I just installed it, and there goes my comfort zone! It's an entirely new interface. I'm not saying it's better or worse, but I'll need some time to get used to it. So to those people who have recently posted questions, my apologies. I will get back to you as soon as I figure out this new software. Meanwhile, feel free to stop by and give it a look-see. There is a lot of information posted, and I WILL get back to you soon.
