Max5, new computer, and Time Machine

    Hi everybody
    Max 5 is installed on my old white Mac Book (2009)and Snow Leopard. I've a Time Machine back up of this white Mac Book, on an external disk.
    Now I’ve a new Mac Book Pro 15″ Retina, and I’ve decided to transfer my Max5 licence on this Mac Book Pro too. Can I connect my Time Machine external disk on my new computer, and import all concerning Max5 of my old white Mac Book (for exemple all my .maxpath patches) ?
    Thanks soooooooooooooo much for help.... I need you because I'm note skilled....
    Have a nice day

      hmmm.... I'm not sure if it'll work. Normally I would just copy everything from my max directory onto a USB stick or non time machine drive and then manually copy it over after I reinstalled max. No harm in trying though as time machine doesn't ever delete anything.
      Always have two backups of everything with a mac, time machine and a dedicated external drive/16 gig usb stick :)
