I have two computers with ACT on them. one is the main one and contains the database and the other is lap top that syncs with it. I want to upgrade to V16.
What it the simplest set of steps to upgrade. I would guess I would do the main computer first, which I would assume would then update the database to V16.
then I would need to upgrade the laptop to V16 and then re-synchronize it. Would I need to set up a whole new sync process or will the upgrade just update it for me?
any help would be appreciated.
