My dad has used ACT 3.0 for quite a long time and has recently upgraded to Microsoft Vista. The application doesn't seem to run properly wioth the new OS. Does anyone know if this can be successfully run under Vista and or if it is is necessary to buy a new copy... if the contact information can remain intact with the new version.

ACT! 3.0 was designed for Windows 98 and some parts of it wouldn't even work with Windows XP. So I would be surprised if it worked ok on Vista.
You'll probably need to upgrade to ACT! 10... you can see the steps to convert the database in this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/3lvknx
