Running ACT 2010 and getting a new computer

I have the ACT! database located on my computer and would like to move the database to the new computer I'm getting. What is the procedure for setting up the rest of the network (4 other machines all on Windows 7) with my new computer as the database server? 

 

One of those articles from the knowledgebase would be good--I just don't know where to start.

You can move the database by using the Backup and Restore functions within the program: KB Article 19211

Here is an article for sharing the database, once moved: KB Article 13878

 

If you have any remotes synchronizing, do not use the backup/restore option.  Here is an article for that situation: KB Article 19817

Am I reading this correctly?

I have the 64 bit verson of Sage ACT 2011 (not the 2010 version like I thought). Some of the articles in the knowledge base are telling me that the 64 bit verson Outlook 2010 is not supported by Sage ACT 2011.

 

So only the 32 bit verson of Outlook will work with the 64 bit verson of ACT?

There isn't a 64-bit version of the ACT! program. It's still a 32-bit program that is compatible with the 64-bit version of Windows 7. And no it doesn't work with the 64-bit version of Outlook.
