I don't install xnviewmp, I'm using portable (zip) version on Windows, and i always select "same directory as program" to store my settings.
So, I look for the most recent files in xnviewmp directory, and i copy them into the new location for a new version
(.ini files, .db files, .qss files, .dat files, default.keys, default.bar)
but
- Don't know if "install" means anything in Mac os
- Don't know if "portable version" means anything in Mac os
- Don't know if you could choose a place for your settings, or if they are stored in a system directory (see Settings, integration, paths)

Go to Settings -> Integration -> Paths

open the config and file catalog location, copy all the files
Install the app on the new mac then copy the files back to the same locations

Make sure your media is in the same path as your original mac
