I'm doing a clean install of a new macBook Pro and I've copied over the fm data files. I also installed FMPA 16 on the mac and it is activated (it accepted the license code). Do I need to "deactivate" FMPA 16 on my retiring MacBook Pro?
If it is being given to someone else, you need to uninstall it. There is no activation/deactivation process anymore.
Thanks, I came across a post that implied this was the case, but I wasn't sure. My plan is to wipe the disk clean on the old mac and install just the OS (going to my daughter). I just don't want to do that until all my ducks are in a row! I have countless apps and many settings (to say nothing of all my data files) to migrate over to the new mac - it's a weeklong process, I expect. I've 14 years of files on the mac (always did a Time Machine restore in the past whenever I bought a new mac) - I didn't have the heart to do a clean install until now! Good thing I'm a good record keeper - I have all new app emails and a database of installation codes.
