Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

What software are you trying to obtain an update of, to put onto the new iMac computer ?

Be warned: if it is a Microsoft product, there almost certainly isn't any way to get a new upgrade onto a different computer - unless you have certain resources to draw upon.

But let me know. And I will advise you. Thanks.
