ACT! 2008 install on new server

We have ACT! 2006 with five users on a network.  The ACT! database resides on our NAS server.  We are about to upgrade to ACT! 2008 and have purchased the upgrade licenses.

 

We want to place the database on a different server.  We have mapped a shared drive on the server to a drive letter.  When we go to create a create a new database, ACT! throws up an error that the database must be created on a local drive.

 

What is the proper way to get the database moved over to the new server and set up as the shared database?  Do I have to physically install the ACT! program on the server hosting the database?  If I do have to install ACT! on the server, does this take one of the licenses?

 

Thank you

Yes, ACT! must be installed on the server where the database is to reside and no it does not count as one of you licenses. The licenses are linked to the users, not the installation.
