ACT for WEB installation issues. Do I need a server? Different OS?

Can somebody please help me??? I am trying to set up ACT for remote users in different locations (15 users remotely) I have ACT for Web. I am having complications installing it. I get the error: Microsoft restricts this version of windows to 10 Network connections. We recommend running the ACT Premium for Web application on a server-class version of windows. I am using Windows Vista(laptop). I also had the same error when I installed it on my desktop(XP Pro SP2). I had to clean insatll Vista on my Laptop because I had XP Media on it. So that took about a week. Then I had to buy an external hard drive to backup my stuff, which I am kind of regretting. Maybe I should send it back and get a server instead. Another thing, I donnot have a server so does that mean I need to get one to use this product. Should I just purchase the workgroups version for me the Administartor and give the web version to another user? Or should I keep this one. PLEASE HELP! Thanks in Advance!

For 10 or more users, you have to use Windows Server 2003.
 
Microsoft doesn't permit Vista or XP to host an application for more than 9 users

So does that mean I can install it normally. And it will work remotely?

ACT! for Web will run on XP or Vista ... for a maximum of 9 users.
 
Although, as the internet often has random connections made, which will take up Microsoft's user count, I don't usually recommend it for reliably connecting greater than 6
