Registered Act! 1 User on 2 Computers?

I have been using Act! 2007 9 for about 9 months now. I just talked the boss into the company getting 3 more copies for my team to use. My ACT! is installed on my work computer, I have a laptop also I use when i travel. The Question: I have installed my ACT! on my laptop and I put a copy of my database on my laptop. 1. First Act! lets you log on under the demo admin. I created a user name that matched my office computer and made him admin. I removed the Admin account, but when I login, it says: There are not enough licenses in this database to allow you to log in. Please contact your administrator. Which I am the adminsitrator? 2. Is there a better way to do this process? My goal is to be able to monitor activity and update customer files when I am away, or even at home when I have time. 3. With the company having 3 users new working off the same contact databases, what is the best way for me to either tie the database's together, or keep theirs in sync'd with mine. (i use it more than anyone) If all these questions are already answered please let me know and ill referrer to those references. Thanks again for your help Signed The Rookie

Try this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/4zge66
Or, if running Vista, try this one - http://tinyurl.com/3pdm7q
2. Is there a better way to do this process? My goal is to be able to monitor activity and update customer files when I am away, or even at home when I have time.
Move the the database on one of the office machines (preferably the fastest and least used) as per this article - http://tinyurl.com/4woxhj
Share with the other office machines as per this article - http://tinyurl.com/53d9gz
Sync to your laptop as per this article - http://tinyurl.com/4b6ne6

As above
