Maximum users with ACT 6/0 Standard

What is the maximum users that can be networked using ACT 6.0 Standard edition?

There isn't any built in limit. One limit would be the number ou licenses that you have. From a practical standpoint I would say under 10 would be best.

Roy, I can only get the ACT 6 to allow me two (2) users and I desperately need four (4). I contacted Sage and was told it is not possible. Please advise.

Thanks

It depends on the number of licenses you have. Most likely the reason Sage would say it's not possible is because they stopped selling ACT! 6 licenses in 2006.

If you need some extra licenses, I still have one last un-opened ACT! 6.0 6-Pack left...

Re: Maximum users with ACT 6/0 Standard

I guess I don't know how many I have. I have used the same program for so long (and got too old) I just discovered I could network it and tow different machines "could" use the same db. I am currently studying whether I want to upgrade to the newest version, and get more users that way, but havn't got there yet. No body likes change less than me.

 

Can you tellme how the "ACT! 6.0 6-Pack" works and how many users you can do with it?

ACT! 6.0 was licensed per machine... but it allowed one extra in case a corruption locked the main user.

 

So, if it allows 2 users, you probably only have a license for 1 machine.

 

The 6-pack allows it to be installed and used from 6 machines.

 

Late versions are licensed per user of the database.

SO, if I buy your 6 Pak license, it will allow up to 6 users to log into and use a db located on a server? If so, how much? because I really don't want to learn a "New Version" at this time.

It will allow 6 users plus the one you seem to have :-)
