Act 11.0 / Vista - Problem sharing database between (2) workstations

I'm having issues sharing a database between (2) networked computers in our office.

 

Both machines are Vista.  Act is version 11.0.  The database was "upgraded" from ACT 2000.  The database is located on a local drive.

I can access the database on the machine it is located on without any problems.  When I go through the menu to attempt to "share" the database, the "share database" option is greyed out.

 

I've tried to "detach" the database via "ACTDIAG" and delete the .PAD file.  After doing this, I'm unable to reopen the database via the .ADF file and it tells me that I don't have permissions to open the file.  I'm logged in as a SysAdmin.

 

I have (2) licenses entered into the database and it tells me that there are (2) available licenses.

 

If anyone can offer any suggestions as to what I can try/do to get this to work, I'd greatly appreciate it.  I can provide additional configuration information if necessary.  Thanks in advance!
