Dear Act community,
I have been and am a loyal user of Act 4.0 since about 1999 or so. The software has always worked great
in all versions so I never bothered upgrading to a newer version of Act.
Well, now, of course, Act 4.0 won't load on my new Windows 7.0 PC, and I tried everything from
compatibility mode issues to running as administrator.
I have all of my act files saved seperately on a directory (in DBF) and, is it possible for me to
purchase and install the newest version of act, and then, OPEN that ACT DBF file? Will it work automtiaclly?
Any help is deeply appreciated,

Is it easier to upgrade from Act 4.0 to Act 6.0, or, will the new Act 2012 open that DBF file the same that Act 6.0 would?

Thanks so much for your quick reply. I really appreciate it.
So, just to make sure, I have 2 users (1 user on an XP machine and one user on the new windows 7 machine).
The DBF file and directory of data will be stored on the XP machine, in which the windows 7 machine through the network
access that directory (just like I do with Act 4.0)
Do I need to buy Act 2012 for 2 users? If so, what is the exact url for that software to buy 2012 ?
i see a premium and pro version, what is better?
Thanks again so much for your help!

I will look into that today.
Last question, does the contact layout (i have a file called datacenter.cly) also import into the new version of act
or is that something I will need to recreate?

It's a separate conversion but it will convert.

Is there an article for the conversion of the cly file from act 4.0 to act 2012?
What menu in act 2012 can I use for that?
Where can I read more about that?
Thanks somuch again for your help!
