installation of act!2008 on Vista notebook and then transfer of database from XP to Vista

Hi there

 

Well ! Everything is almost on the tille !

I used to run with ACt since several years and I use it on my XP based notebbok (as mater) and a copy of the database on the windows Xp based descktop of my assistant via network.

It works quite fine (sync etc...).

 

Today I received a new notebook running on Vista Prof.

 

I installed Office 2007 and updated windows.

 

I would like your best advise to install ACT! 2008 (10) on this new vista based notebbok and then transfer the database to this notebook.

 

But first the installation as I read on this forum that SQL server 2005 and ACT§2008 have troubles to exist/install togetehr ???

 

Thanks for your best advise !

 

Zaza

 

 

What is well thought is clearly explained and the words to tell come easily.

ACT! 2008 requires SQL Server 2005.  There will not be an issue with both applications coexisting on the same computer.

 

Before installing ACT!, run Windows updates to get all the latest updates.  Then you can install ACT!.
