At my business, we are running ACT 2006 v8. The database lives on a Windows XP machine, and it is being shared over the network with a second machine running Windows 7. We have 2 user licenses - the primary license is on the XP machine and the second license is on the Windows 7 machine.
We're going to get rid of the XP machine, so we want to run our database only on the Windows 7 machine without any network sharing.
I'm not familiar with how ACT works in a netwroked environment with 2 licenses so my questions are:
Is the full ACT application already installed on the Windows 7 machine? So if I just copy our database to the Windows 7 machine will it run without a problem?
Regarding the licenses - after copying my database, can I log in to the Windows 7 machine with either of my licensed log-ins? I don't know if the primary license is somehow permanently associated with the XP machine. Once the XP machine is pulled from the network will this prevent me from using our primary login?

Thanks for the reply Francis.
We don't use remote synchronization. So I will save a backup file, then do a "restore as" when I restore it to my Windows 7 machine, like the article describes.
Is there anything I need to know about our licenses? When I remove the XP machine from our network, will I still be able to login to my Windows 7 machine with the user name that I was using on my XP machine?
