In order to load FL Studio projects (.flm) into FL Studio for Windows, you will need to do the following:

1. Register your FL Studio Mobile installation from your device. See here for details.

2. Install the latest FL Studio version (You need FL Studio 11 or later).

3. Download the additional content for FL Studio (Windows version) from the Content Library in FL Studio OR your MY ACCOUNT page as shown below.

The Content Library

OR you can use your Account Page


MY ACCOUNT additional content location

If you downloaded from your MY ACCOUNT, then unzip the files anywhere the FL Studio Browser can see it OR in ..:\Users\YOUR ACCOUNT\Documents\Image-Line\Data\FL Mobile. This way it will be seen as downloaded by the Content Library.

4. Sync your iOS device to iTunes and copy (drag and drop) your FL Studio Mobile projects (.flm) to a folder on your Windows installation and preferably also visible from the FL Studio Browser.

Export your .flm projects to your Windows folders.

 
5. Drag the .flm project from the FL Studio Browser (or Windows folder) and drop on the FL Studio desktop and the project will be imported. See a video here on how to add new folders to the Browser.

The online manual explains the process here. However here are some notes for you:
 
1. .zip files exported from FL Studio Mobile will also contain any custom instruments and audio files. Image-Line factory instruments are not included in the .zip and need to be downloaded through the Download & Library manager. 
 
2. To open FL Studio Mobile .zip projects directly in FL Studio for Windows, prior to 11.0.5, you will need to extract the .zip contents to a browser visible location before the project will load. After 11.0.5 you can load the .zip file as is.
