I used Microsoft Accounting for a few years now so all my records are with that program. I had XP. I backed up my file because I had to buy a new PC, Windows 7 and I downloaded it again and tried to restore my file but could not. The message I got was something like the file was originally done on a newer version. I found out that Microsoft no longer supports the 2009 version and I cannot get my file to open and I am on the brink of madness. Is there anything I can try to get this to work? I looked for updates and downloaded service packs but nothing worked.
