Moving ACT Program onto another system

I have ACT 6.0 installed on a network of 7 computers.  I orginally bought a 5 user license plus 2 individual licenses.  We will be phasing out the 7 computers and using a new computer system.  What is the best way to install the program onto the new system using the licenses that I already have?  I know there is a newer version but I am not ready to upgrade.
 
Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Moving ACT Program onto another system

When you reinstall ACT! 6 make sure that you use the serial numbers for the individual licenses on only one machine each. The other serial number can be used on each of the remaining system.
 
I'm curious, are the new computers going to use the Vista operating system or Office 2007? If so, ACT! 6 won't connect to Word 2007 and what problems there might be running ACT! 6 on Vista are unknown but there are likely going to be some problems.

Providing, as Roy stated, you're not installing on Vista machines or machines with Office 2007, try reading these articles in the ACT! Knowledge Base:
