adding second workstation

I have been a ACT Single License user for some time now. I need to add on a scecond workstation to access a database. The way i understand it, you can add two more workstations to your single license without having to purchase another License. However, only one workstation can access the database at a time. IF this is true, then I plan on dropping my .PAD file on our network server and installing ACT on the second workstation using the original install disk from my original Single license. Once installed, will the second workstation be able to access my database on the network server or are their addtiional steps?

Thanks,

Re: adding second workstation

The program can be installed more than once but with a single license, only one named user can access the database.

Re: adding second workstation

So does that mean Workstation 2 needs to log on as the user of the orginal licensee to gain access?

Re: adding second workstation

Thanks. If I buy another license and install it on Workstation 2, then will that workstation be able to access the database on the network (independently and at the same time as other licensed users?)

 

thanks,

Re: adding second workstation

Thanks. I currently have the .PAD file on the network server with 1 licensed user on workstation 1 and 1 remote user on workstation2 accessing thru the original license. Does the Network server have to have ACT installed on it in order for the database to work on workstation 2?
