Sage ACT! Premium 2011 Not opening

ACT! has stopped working for me. When I click to open it up, an error pops up that reads "Sage ACT! has stopped working... Windows is checking for a solution to the problem." 

 

I'm working with Windows 7 Ultimate and Sage ACT! Premium 2011. 

 

Thanks.

If you haven't already, change the Compatibility setting - from Juan's post. Then attempt to open.

Hi Juan,

 

That did not solve the issue. My ACT! will not open whatsoever. 

 

Thanks.
