When you converted the programs, hopefully you used a copy and your original files can be used...else you can export the 2014 file as a 2012 file and continue to use Though most security software is disabled through a clean boot, some may not be fully disabled.

when I upgraded to 2014... A lesson yet to be learned by product designers in many fields is that "Just because something can be done does not mean that it should be done." Ancestry do not but I don't want to have to depend on a cloud service and/or be online to be able to access my own data. http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2012/05/18/family-tree-maker-2012-update-may/ Tonight, however, with all due respect, I think you've missed the boat in your assessment of the announcement that ancestry.com made today.

All cloud based. Family Tree Maker Updates I have repeatedly downloaded the Ancestry file to FTM and created a new file which syncs once or twice, then fails after I make a few changes to Ancestry. It is much better to have a few major new features in an application that works well, than many new features in an application that continually crashes.
Incidentally, an Office 365 subscription actually installs traditional desktop versions of the Office applications, while also making available lighter-weight web-based and App Store alternatives. For example, parents of spouses, and complete families of a person married 4 times and the complete spouses and families of those spouses - are all lost in these filtered split What's more, even if the quality of the application did not change at all, the 64-bit application is still likely to provide a much better user experience than the 32-bit application.
