Point Acctivate Workstation to new Server after migration

When moving Acctivate to a new Server, there are a couple of different ways to update the Client computers to point to Acctivate on your new Server.

Option 1

Update your Acctivate shortcuts to point to the new server by changing the Target of the shortcut.

  1. Right-click the Acctivate icon on the desktop and select Properties.
    shortcut 1
  2. On the Shortcut tab, change the Target to point to the Acctivate.exe on your new server. We recommend you use the UNC Path to point to Acctivate (i.e. \\Servername\ACCTivate\Acctivate.exe).
    shortcut 2
  3. Click Apply to save the change, then OK to close the window.

Option 2

Reinstall Acctivate Client (Secondary) on each workstation to point to Acctivate on your new server.  You can download the workstation installer here.
