I am using Act Pro 2013 as a single user running Windows 7.
Wondering if it's possible to move the database file on my network drive so it can be accessed by multiple PCs on my home network? These are Windows machines running 7 to Windows 10.
If so, how would I do this?
Please let me know. Thank you.

Moving the database wouldn't be hard but Windows 10 would be a problem.

ACT! 2013 isn't compatible with Windows 10.

Yes it would.
You can find a Knowledgebase article on how to share a database between multiple machines here: http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13878
If you would prefer to see the sharing process in a video, you can find this in our Act Premium training library under Databases & Users: http://training-act.com/act/act-lib-prem/en-us/Launch.html

There are 2 basic methods of having multiple machines access the same database:
I would recommend that you use a Shared Database in your scenario, as I assume all your machines are on the same network. The links I posted above describe how to set this up.
