Unable to change location of database.

I have two computers with ACT and both have different databases on them, both are designated as the main database.  I want to sync the laptop with the desktop and have the desktop be the main database.  The desktop is set to go, but "change location of main database" is disabled on laptop.  I am logged in as admin, and clicking on the .rdb file from the desktop just opens ACT to old database.  What am I missing?

Re: Unable to change location of database.

You can't have two databases "designated as the main" (or Publisher) database.

You can't sync different databases... you would need to merge the two databases into a single database and then set up sync and give the other system the RDB

 

Maybe have a read of this for some more info:
