Question about 2008 versions

Hi all;
Recently I received an ACT 2008 premium key for doing some beta testing.  My boss and I have been using 2008 (regular version) for some time.
I'm getting a new PC tomorrow.  I'm experimenting with installing 2008 premium.  Things installed perfectly, but after restoring my database, I receive a warning telling me that the database must be updated to work with 2008 for Workgroups (which is the version I downloaded) and that all users must be on Premium.
Question is - can I be on Premium (some other version than workgroups) while my boss stays on the regular version?

Re: Question about 2008 versions

No - all users of a shared database must use the same version of ACT!
Premium has additional items in the database that the standard version won't recognise
