I wish there was some simple way to just get my filemaker pro 12 app on to my new mac laptop so i can then transfer my files on my flashdrive. But instructions I read sounded quite complicated. Anybody out there who can help me with a 1,2,3 step EASY process!! I have a filemaker pro invoice "database" that I need on both computers.
Transferring the license should be relatively simple:
Uninstall on machine 1.
Install on machine 2.
Then just copy your databases. Or are you talking about FileMaker Server (instead of Pro)?
It sounds like you got a copy of the Server migration instructions and are trying to apply them to the client install.
