I HAVE TRIED TWICE TO INSTALL act 2008 IN MY NEW LAPTOP. i KEEP GETTING AN ERROR THAT SAYS
++++++++++++++++++++++++++THE TYPEOF INITIALIZER FOR' PROTEXIS 0' THREW AN EXCEPTION. WHEN I CLICK OK ACT CLOSES
ALSO DURING INSTALLATION , I RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE. PREREQ.EXCEPTIONS.Invalid input exception: exception type Prereq.exceptions.invalid Input exception was thrown.at.Prereq.AccessINI.Parse(Text Reader sr) at Prereq.Program. Main (string 0 args)
Also received another Error # 1620 saying " this installation package could not be opened, contact application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package.
I had no problems installing it in Windows XP SP(3) So I'm wondering if the problem is missing software to work with windows 7
Can anyone help me out with this ?

Act! 2008 isn't supported on a Windows 7 OS, but will usually install and run (only on a 32-bit OS). The error 'type of initializer for Protexis' usually indicates that you have a 64-bit OS and Act! 2008 is not compatible with a 64-bit OS.
