I have some backup disks created several years ago in ACT 4.0 that I would like to recover. I purchased a copy of ACT 4.0 and installed in on my XP laptop.
When I click on the icon I get nothing. Have uninstalled and reinstalled several times with the same results.
I know 4.0 is an old product, but it's the one I used to use and was comfortable with.
Is 4.0 compatible with XP? If not, are there any tweaks that will allow me to use it to restore my contacts? I desperately need these records recreated for an upcoming IRS audit. When I created these I was working for a company that used 4.0 and all I could take with me when I went into business for myself was the backup disks.

ACT! 4.0 was not compatible with XP. Even ACT! 5.0 only supported Windows 95/98 and NT when it was released and had a later patch to allow it to run under XP (although it still had issues)
You should see if you can get ACT! 6.0, which will be able to open the ACT! 4.0 database and convert it.
