Suggestions on upgrading 2007 to 2010

I am currently using ACT2007. I would like to upgrade to ACT2010 and install the program on a new laptop using windows 7. Should I purchase the 2010 upgrade, reinstall 2007 on my new laptop then install 2010? Is this the correct way to go about this?

Should not need to install 2007 on Win 7 PC - might not even install anyway...

 

Back up the database on old PC.

 

Install 2010 on Win 7 PC.

 

Restore 2007 backup to Win 7 PC with Act! 2010, it will restore and then 'upgrade' the database version to 2010.

 

 

BTW - Win 7 is not officially supported, but generally seems to work.

Windows 7 is officially supported with ACT! by Sage 2010.
