How Do I Point Acctivate Workstation to New Server After Migration?

Update your Acctivate shortcuts to point to the new server by changing the Target of the shortcut or Reinstall Acctivate Client (Secondary) on each workstation to point to Acctivate on your new server.

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.
