Did you not get the earlier replies that said you do NOT install the old FH Versions.
Just install the version 4 to v5 upgrade.
It is all explained at:

Subject: [FHU] Migrating FH to a new laptop
I am currently using FH5 in a Windows 7 environment on a laptop
I have just purchased a MacBook Air that has Paralles/Windows 8.1 installed.
I would like to migrate my FH v5 into this environment.
I note that I have from the past:
-- version 2.0.7 cd
--version 3 upgrade
-- version 4 upgrade
-- version 4 to v5 upgrade
It is not possible now to install the 2.0.7 CD to start off the upgrading process.
How can I reinstall FH v5 into the new environment?
I want to have completed this in time to upgrade to v6 when available.
