      Transferring FM12 Pro Advanced to a new computer.

      Post


           Hi

           On my (old) Mac computer I have an upgrade version of FM12 Pro Advanced. This was an upgrade from FM11 Pro Advanced.

           I have just bought a new Mac computer. I wish to transfer my copy of FM12 Pro Advanced to this new computer (and stop using the old one).

           How do I go about this, as I cannot find the answer on the Internet.

           Thanking you in advance.

               It's a lot less hassle if you always save your installers that you downloaded in order to install the software in the first place. If you can't run the installer for 12 without first having an installed copy of 11 due to it being an upgrade installer, you can install both in turn. But you may be able to just install 12 without 11. I'd at least try it.

               If you can't find your installers, contact FileMaker tech support and as long as you registered your software, they should be able to verify that you had properly licensed copies of the software and they can send you a new installer. I'd expect that it would not be an upgrade installer either.
