upgrading from premium 2013 V15 to V16

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.
