my office been using Act Sage 2008 Premium for years.Before i join the company as IT support, the database was setup on a normal desktop pc. Then i transfer the database by copying the whole Act!2008 folder to the server and share out the folder for my colleage to login. Then i found out there is a problem. i need to turn on the normal desktop pc where my colleage setup the database and server together or else my colleage couldn't login the system.
i also try to edit the XXX.pad file by using notepad to change the host value to server name and location value, but the problem still remain.
anyone encounter this problem before?? please advice.

What you did won't work.
First install ACT! on the server machine. Then backup the database where it is presently located and do a Restore As of the database in ACT! on the server.
