exporting to new laptop

I have 2009 version 11.0  my old laptop that this is installed on is dying and I want to put on the new laptop i bought.

 

Can someone give me step by step instructions to saving my databases: (client and prospect) so it will install correctly on new laptop?

 

Also, will this work or will it think i am trying to use another computer for a 1 license purchase?

 

thank you,

Darren

Re: exporting to new laptop

You will need to upgrade your ACT to a newer version that supports win 7.  after that you would back up the database on the old machine and restore on to the new machine.  Once ACT is installed on the new machine, and the database is restored, when you open it, the upgrade process will start.

 

other than that let us know if you have a specific question.
