A bit more info is needed really.  If you're using a PC just uninstall it, if you're using a Mac, delete it from the Applications directory.  Then use your FM installation disc to install the software on another machine.  Simples.

Do you have the disk, do the install BEFORE you uninstall any files.  Your license key will allow this.  Then make copies of all your data and install that.  Verify everything works first before your remove or delete any files.

Just to be clear, you mean FileMaker PRO Advanced, not FileMaker SERVER Advanced, correct?

I know, but I asked because people often get confused about the difference and doing a migration with Server might seem less obvious and more likely to generate a question.

Fair point.  As you were then...  :o)
