We switched fro Mac to WinXP although converting the licence form Mac
to PC is extremly expensive!!!!
To import your old Mac files you habe to add the new WinXP-Version
extension manualy. A lot of handwork because I could not find a
software like filetyper (mac) to do the job in a kind of batch
conversion on the pc.
