Act 2006 on MS SBS 2011

Can Act Premium for Workgroups (Act 2006) be installed on my new seerver running Windows Small Buinsess Server 2011 OS?

 

Thanks in advance!

I would doubt it ... ACT! 2006 used Microsoft .Net 1.1 and SQL 2000 - neither of which are supported on their more recent operating systems

Thanks Mike,

 

It is what I was afraid of. I was hoping to delay the purchase of a new CRM for a bit to give me time to do more research. I need mobile connectivty (iPad/Blackberry) and the ability to get hooks into the database to run reports in MSAccess.

 

Cheers!

Upgrade ACT!...
Use Handheld Contact for iPad/Blackberry
MS-Access can report on ACT! databases via OLEDB or ODBC

You are right - I have 15 client to update - and business is not great right now......... Tough to spend the money...

These are some of those things that need checking before upgrading operating systems - server or workstation :-(

Yes - once again you are right. My IT consultant didn't make the connection and I should have done more research on my own.

 

Cheers!
