Can an ACT certificate be transferred

Hi,

 

Im new to ACT and supporting users with it. I was wondering if its possible for the ACT certificate to be transferred from one PC to another. Im asking because we are setting up a DRP location (secondary location) for our office which would require ACT to be installed on a pc there.


Thanks,

 

John

ACT! is licensed by the number of users, not machines ... so, yes, you can move to a different PC with no trouble

If we export the Certificate then do we have to import it back to the original PC?

 

In others words: is it a cut and paste or a copy paste?

The license is just a key they you type to install ... nothing to export.

Or do you mean the database?

I think I meant the database. Is that easy to move between pc's?

Back the database up with the File | Backup and use the Restore As option on the new computer.

Unless you need to share the database between users on different machines ... then you need a different process.

Let us know if you need that
