How to share a Db with other users on a server?

I have a small office with 3 users that want to share one of the users Act Db.  This is ACT! 2005 for Windows Version 7.0.4.82.

1 user, on who's system the Db resides is running XP.  The other 2 users are running Windows 7 with the same version of ACT.  

 

I want to move this Db up to the server (Server 2008) and have them all be able to access it.  But when I copied it up there the current user could not open it as it was on a shared drive.

 

Can anybody point me to the way to do this?

 

Thanks,

Jim

The first thing you would have to do is install the ACT! program on the server and ACT! 2005 won't run on server 2008. You need to upgrade to ACT! 2012 and you need to do it now while you can still get upgrade pricing.
