Can I set up somewhere that i would like email notification if a question I posted is answered??
you can create a custom stream (under News) and then "follow" any thread to that stream. In your preferences, add the new stream to be emailed to you.
Thank you Beverly but.....Isn't there anything in preferences that says I'd like to receive an email to notify me if my question was answered because I don't want to keep the filemkaer.com open unless I need it. I don't want to set up a stream. I am very new to all this. For now, I only want to know an answer to my question about getting my filemaker pro12 app on to a newer laptop I just bought (I have license/pro key) and I want it to be super easy!!!
I don't mean a message in filemkaker pro inbox. I'm referring to my regular email that I am registered with.
The way this forum works is by emailing the streams (inbox, included) if you desire (your choice). Using streams allows you to limit what you get an email about. I don't stay logged in 24/7. I use a combination of emailed stream and logging in when needed.
1. UNINSTALL from the old computer
2. INSTALL on the new computer
Beverly. I don't want to UNINSTALL from old computer I need to use on both computers. I burned the application to a DVD (671mb) but then realized i had no disk drive in my new macbook pro so I transferred to a new disk drive and tried that but got a message that application was installed incorrectly....Cannot imagine why that should not have worked. It should not be so difficult!
If you posted the question then only you can mark it as answered. I you mean a question for which there are responses I don't know.

Rgordon....I just pressed reply because I want to see if this works!! I'll be happy if it does. It looks like a super long nonusable email- ha ha!If you do get this, I would love to know why it is that when I copy the filemaker pro 12 application on to a flash drive (uses 671 MB) and then ry to put it on my new laptop (since I have license key), it gives me a message that it it's been installed incorrectly. see attached. I'm going nuts from this!! Carole

I'm going to try to reply and see what happens! Thank you.
Not sure about the FM install but I would guess the installer installs something that is not included in the FileMaker folder.
