Upgrading ACT! by Sage 2009 (11.0) Version 11.1.183.0, Hotfix 4 to 2011 Premium

ACT! by Sage 2009 (11.0) Version 11.1.183.0, Hotfix 4 running on a Windows 2003 server (SP2)  with 5 wired networked PC's all running XP Pro SP3, one remote user laptop running XP Pro (SP3) remotely syncing.

 

I am considering upgrading to Act 2011 Premium. I have loaded 2011 Premium on a seperate test server (windows 2003 server SP2) from where my 2009 Act install resides. I want to copy my Act 2009 database to the 2011 install so I can test without disturbing my current 2009. What files do I need to copy to the test server and is there anything special I should know in order to do this?

From the 2009 machine you would create a Sage ACT! backup. Open act, file menu, backup, database. That process would will create a zip file, and restore. In the new version of act, file menu, restore, restore as.
This would give the database a new name on the new machine and allow you to test from there.
