I have read several messages here and searched the knowledge base.
What I can't figure out is the following:
1. Can you set up synchronization on 2 stand alone laptops (like in your house), that are not on a network or any type?
2. Can this with done with the standard version of ACT 2010 (not the premium or higher editions) being installed on both laptops?

You need some type of direct connection in order to sync

Thank you. I read the info on the link that you posted. it sounds like I can use one laptop as the server and set the database to be shared, and the other laptop for the workstation for the remote database.
Do you think that in future versions, the process of sharing a database between 2 or more stand alone computers will become easier?
I would like to see an option that can be selected, that will copy all necessary files to a zip file and save it on an external thumb drive as an executable file and then be able to double-click on the .exe file and have the files copied to the remote machine.

I'm not sure how much easier it can get?
It's a SQL sync, which means it does require a direct connection

I'm searching Community to try to learn how to syncrhonize my desktop to my laptop database. I read your comment, "I'm not sure how much easier it can get?" in a reply that you sent to someone. I'll tell you how easy it can get. Go back and do a synchronize in ACT 2000. It's a snap. I just upgraded from 2000 to 2010 and for the life of me I can't figure out how to synchronize between my two PCs.
