I have a brand new Apple iMac 27.
How do I transfer my data from my old iMac using FMP 12.0v5 to my new iMac. My serial number begins 34V38-

What macOS came installed on your new iMac, and do you still have the installer for FileMaker 12?
If its pre-installed with High Sierra then its not supported and may not work properly if you get it installed
FileMaker platform compatibility with macOS High Sierra
If you have an older version of macOS then you would just need the installer
I would recommend upgrading if you can however.
Thanks for your prompt reply.
My brand new iMac27 has macOS Sierra v 10.12.6 installed (but no Filemaker wants to carry forward from my 5 year old, now fading iMac).
It runs man OS Sierra v 1012.6
My 5 year old iMac has and still runs a perfectly working paid for by me FMP 12.ov5.
Wazzup please? No forward transfer seems to be available. Do I have to buy a second copy of the same software?
I have just tested this out between my MacBook and Mac Mini and it seems to work fine if you copy the entire FileMaker 12 application folder form one machine to another, it even keeps the registration details so I didn't have to re-key these.
Give that a try and see if it all works ok.
I can confirm copying the entire application carries everything over.
Sometimes I find that compressing the FMP folder works when other methods fail.
If you use Mac's Migration Assistant it should all be done for you—assuming that's still available in the latest MacOS.
