Move Act 2010 database onto new computer and upgrade

Hi,

 

I want to get an old Act 2010 database off an existing computer and onto a new computer in our office. I need to install Act 2010 on the new computer in order to move the database but can't find a download file for the older version. Can you provide a download link for this version and give me some advice on how best to move the database?

 

Cheers.

Brek,

There is a knowledgebase article Moving an Act! Database  that will step you through the process of moving the database.

You will likely find the installation files on your existing computer located at C:\Act_Pro_2010 or similar, if you copy this complete folder to your new machine you can re-install using this. Run setup.exe. You should however check compatibility with the new PC by referring to system requirements information 2010 system requirements. If you require upgrade software for compatibility you can purchase from your local Australian ACT! Consultant listed here http://www.actcrm.com.au/partners/
