Running Multiple Sessions of ACT 2010

Is it possible to run multiple sessions of ACT 2010 at the same time on the same computer? I would like to open multiple databases similtaneously in some fashion much like having multiple windows open being able to instantly switch back and forth between accessing different data in different data layouts?

 

I am not sharing with any other computer. It is standalone on my laptop. What do I need to do to be able to accomplish this?

Using the basic Act! program it is not possible to open more than 1 database at a time.

No that hasn't changed. there are two ways to accomplish what you want. One method would be to use ACT! for the WEB for one database and have the other database local.  the other method would be to setup a virtual machine on your computer and install ACT! on that virtual machine and then you could have one database open on the main computer and the second open on the virtual machine.
