I have just installed Act! Pro Version 188.8.131.52, Update 6 on my new Windows 10 machine.
I have MS Office installed. Outlook is 2016 MSO (16.0.10228.20134) 32-bit.
When I try to select Outlook as my mail system (as I did on the predecessor system), I get this:
It sees to me this should be a reasonably seamless process, as it was for the previous installation. I have had suggestions to uninstalll and reinstall Office, but that is a non-starter for me. I'd switch to a different CRM before going through that process.
Does anyone have any actionable information for me so that I can get this system working the way it did before?

Try Office Quick Repair from Control Panel
Its an easy process.
Reboot and try Act! again.

Another possible reason (had this a few times...):
Outlook is not set as the "Standard APP" for Email in the Windows settings.

I was finally able to solve the problem by reinstalling Outlook. This wiped out my calendar, but I was able to restore it from a backup.
This is not the first time I have had the problem, and I have had the same problem (or far worse) with an earlier install.
I have been using Act from the time when it was a DOS program. It is inconceivable to me that there would still be any problems of such a serious nature in a program as mature and widely-used as this one.
At least it's fixed. Thanks to everyone for the help.
