Most ACCs (myself included) today work via remote control so if you nave internet access on your computer, most any ACC would be able to help you. The process described in the earlier post is the on that needs to be followed. It's relatively simple.

Thanks but too complicated for me.

Just an overview, but here are the basic steps:

 

First off, check to ensure that your other software is compatible with the version of Act to which you are upgrading (Add-ons, Office, etc)

 

Back up your existing Databases (File|Backup)

Uninstall Sage Act!

Uninstall SQL Server Express (probably 2008 R2)

Install new version of Swiftpage Act!

Update Act with the latest SP or Hotfix.

Run Windows Update

 

Not sure how many users you have, but they should all be on the same version of Act if you are sharing/syncing your database.

I am going to look out for an ACT! consultant near my community of Vero Beach, FL who could do the work.  Not my area of expertise.
