Act! 2011 Premium upgrade from Act! Premium 2006

Ok, I've installed 2011 on a new server.  I've successfully copy over my database to the new server and got it running.  I now need to install the client programs on all of my 14 clients before cutting over live.  All 14 of my clients are still working on the old server.


When I go to install the first client machine, it tells me I already have a version installed.  I need uninstall it first.  This is really not an option.


I'd really like to install the client on all of the machine, test to make sure everything is working before I cut over.  Is that too much to ask for?

Hello Joe,
Unfortunately, you cannot have two versions of ACT! installed on the same machine (applies to ACT! 2005 and higher). You will need to uninstall ACT! 2006 before you can install ACT! 2011. You may need to do your testing with a machine that does not have ACT! installed or on a virtual machine.
