Moving to new Mac
I have FMPro 6 on my G4, I now have an iMac 21 1/2. How can I transfer one large data base from the old to the new Mac?
Also, can I use my FMPro6 in the OSX 6, or must I upgrade to the lastest FMPro?
I have a client using FMP 5.5 on Leopard OSX 10.5.8 to access a FMPServer 5.5.
I have not tried to install such an early version on Snow Leopard 10.6
The reports I have read indicate that FMP 8 and 9 sometimes work, depending on the database complexity.
The file transfer could be done with a USB flash drive, firewire target disk mode, external harddrive, network, internet file transfer website or email attachment
Hi and thanks for the response.
There is document on the old Mac that is called "books" that is my data. If I just move this to the iMac and drop it into FMP will that work?
I would backup, Save AS, the database as Books2
I would use the Recover command under File Menu in FMP 6 on Books2 which will create a Books2 Recovered file
Move the recovered database to the Macbook Rename it Books3
Install FMP 6 and test the database.
If it does not work, download the FMP 10 demo, install and test.
It would be useful if you posted the results of the process.
