-===== Using Pedigree Software under Windows 7 ===== 
-==== PediTree ==== 
-PediTree installs and runs perfectly well under Windows 7, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. ​ It should be installed in the usual way, preferably from a recent CD supplied by Pedigree Software. ​ Do //not// be tempted to install it in one of the Program files directories,​ as these have special security settings that can produce difficulties. ​ Simply use C:\pedigree (or a similar root folder). 
  
-You canif you wish, place your databases in a different location under C:\Users...+Here are a number of questions that are often asked about Pedigree Software programswith some tried and tested answers
  
-The various utility programs (Database ​Utilities, GedUtils, PedSpecs and PedClone) should also work under both 32and 64-bit versionsalthough this hasn't yet been confirmed.+  * [[faq:​pediwin|Will Pedigree Software work in all Windows versions?​]]

-==== Pedigree for DOS ==== 
-Pedigree for DOS will install and work under 32-bit Windows 7, **but not** under the 64-bit versions. ​ If you //must// have it on a 64-bit system, then it can be run using a free utility called DosBox. (Details may be provided later.) 
- 
-===== PediTree: DB32 Fatal Error ===== 
-{{:​faq:​db32err.gif|}} 
- 
-The appearance of a message-box like the above with the same heading is often due either to a missing file or 
-to a fault in your database. From PediTree version 3.330 (February 2010), missing or inaccessible files 
-should be detected before DB32 is involved, so these messages are probably due to a database fault (the example above is one such). 
- 
-The quick fix is to restore your database from a recent back-up copy. Alternatively,​ you may prefer 
-to repair the database, if possible. ​ Instructions for this are available [[faq:​dbutil|here]].
