Save your .FTW file created by FTM 11 onto a CD or USB memory stick

Load FTM 2012 onto your new computer and register it

Using WIndows Explorer create a folder on your new computer and copy your .FTW file from FTM 11 to it from your USB/CD

Open FTM 2012

In the Plan view click on New tree

Select the option import from an existing file

Navigate to where you have copied your .FTW file from FTM 11

Select it and click Next

FTM 2012 will do the rest

It is likely that once you get the file into FTM 2012 you will have to do some work on your places but there are good tools to do this

Also as you may be new to FTM 2012 have a look at the Help built in Tutorials
