I've seen various indications that it's possible to use APFW 2009 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2 ... posts from people who have ti working successfully, etc. ... but I can't find a definitive statement anywhere that that configuration is supported. Can anyone clarify?

Thx for replying, MIke ... so the sys req'ts at that link doesn't explicitly say that R2 is supported (unlike for 2011, where it is explicitly listed), for neither the OS nor SQL Server .... is the way to read it that since Windows Server 2008 is a "minimum" req't, anything newer will be supported?
Sorry, just trying to juggle dependencies for multiple software packages from various vendors running on the same box -- measure twice cut once.

Welcome to the ACT! Online Community!
In the system requirements, the operating systems are the ones tested and supported. The 'minimum' basically refers to processor speed, hard drive space, memory available, etc...
So, for your question - the answer is: no - ACT! 2009 for web is not supported on MS Server 2008 R2 SP1 and SQL Server 2008 R2. This doesn't mean it won't run on it, but it does mean that we have not tested to see if it will run on that environment.
Other Community members may be able to respond with experience from attempting to run this configuration.

I am planning to upgrade to a 2008 R2 server. I have ten licenses for ACT 2009 that I would like to continue to use. I see from the posts that the platform is not officially supported. In the end did this work for you? Does anyone else have positive or negative experience with this?

I very strongly advise that you do not install ACT! Premium for Web of any version on a MS Windows 2011 SBS server as it can cause the server to crash. A number of ACT! Consultants have done this and either had to rebuild the server or spend many hours in fixing the server. SBS 2011 is quite different in the way that security certificates are handled. If you run any services reliant on IIS you will have problems, e.g.. ActiveSync, Sharepoint OWA.
I have advised Sage ACT! technical staff of the problem as have other ACT! Consultants
