Can WE run 2012 premium for one user and all of our other users run 2011 premium ?

We have 2011 premium and it's running very smoothly. I would like to install 2012 premium and test it before we install on all our workstations - Is it possible for the two to exist using the same database

No. All users sharing a database must have the same version of Sage ACT! installed. For testing, you will want to isolate the computer with Sage ACT! 2012. You could restore a backup of the database on that 2012 computer and test without affecting the other users.

(If 2012 accesses the database, it will be updated to the new format and the 2011 users will not be able to access it).
