Microsoft never got the ActiveX controls to work in 64-bit ... that's the part that many addon developers use to talk to Office

Microsoft's recommendation is to install in 32bit unless you're operating with spreadsheets over 2-3 GB ... which is the only times you really notice the difference

gee that is strange that it won't run on windows 10.

Please don't tell my computer as it is running perfectly fine.

just load it the same way as for windows 7.

run the program, not the setup.

the program is NOT in the root folder, you have to go looking for it.

I have tried to run the setup.  It unpacks but never goes further with the install.

I changed some settings in the Properties file of the .exe file, Run as Adminstrator for example, reinstalled and worked fine.

Hi
Act 6 with three Windows 7
Master with .dbf
Slave 1 pointing to .dbf
Slave 2 pointing to .dbf

The Master runs perfect, Slave 1 and 2 are slow, too slow to use.

We have the above setup with XP (no internet) running well.

Any advice why the network isn't supper fast, or how to fix.

All above ethernet cat 5 connected.

Thanks in advance.

ACT!@ 6 was never tested on Windows 7. All bets are off.
