ACT 6.0 compatibility issue

I have been using 6.0 with windows 7 for past 8 months. This past Friday I can no longer open ACT with message that there is a compatibility issue. Help

I have no idea what is causing your problem. Running ACT! 6 on Windows 7, other than in an EX virtual machine, is subject to unknown stability problems.

Re: ACT 6.0 compatibility issue

There are several steps involved. First you system hardware needs to be able to support a virtual machine because part of the system memory and hard drive space needs to be dedicated to the virtual machine. You will need vittual machine software (I use VMWare). Finally you will need a copy of the Windows XP operating system to install on your virtual machine.

 

The virtual machine becomes a logical separate system co-resident on your main system.
