MIxed Act! versions

Could somebody please advise if there is a way to run mixed versions of Act! (Specifically 2010 Database and 2 workstations using 2011) or does the site need to upgrade all of their licenses?

 

Thanks,

 

Kayton

Re: MIxed Act! versions

If sharing the same database, they all need to be on the same version.

ACT! 2012 is due in a few weeks ... you should see if you can upgrade all of them and get 2011 keys for the 2010 users till then

Also, you can't have multiple versions of ACT on the same machine.

Thanks for the reply, I assumed as much, and I should have waited, already upgraded them to 2011 yesterday.  Oh well, it seems a lot happier with WIndows 7/Office 2010 which was the point of upgrading anyway.

In Australia, most of the ACT! Consultants have some specials for ACT! 2012 upgrades that might be worth looking at
