I just got a new job and need to move Act (ACT! by Sage 2009 (11.0) Version 188.8.131.52) from my desktop to my new laptop. What is the best way to move the software (I think I downloaded it from Act rather than have it on a CD)? I think I know how to backup and restore the database.

You need to get the install files and install it. You can't just move the application
You can usually get the install from whereever you purchased the app from
To move the database, see:

As Mike stated, you cannot move the actual ACT! installation, you would need to fully reinstall the software. If you are unable to locate your install disk or download, please send me your ACT! serial number via Private Message and I will send you the appropriate download link.
Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
