moving to MAC

I am converting to a MacBook Pro and want to run my ACT on this computer. I am about to upgrade to 11 and was looking for advice from anyone that has done this.

 

I have Boot Camp set up with Windows and would like suggestions from anyone running Act this way.

 

Thanks

I haven't personal setup this environment, but the setup should work.  Before installing ACT!, install all critical Windows updates first.

Can't say whether or not Boot Camp will work, but we use VMWare and run Windows Vista Business with ACT 2009.  So far it works pretty well.  The only issue we run into from time to time is the network settings on the VM software getting fouled up and the ACT system can't see the server.  We always make these users Remote Users with RDB's due to the nature of a VM on a machine.  Hope this helps.

Re: moving to MAC

don't use bootcamp.  i strongly suggest VMWARE Fusion. Find it on your fav MAC site.
