ACT 6 on Windows 10

As the old post is a long way down the list and people still asking the same question decide to repeat again

 

As before -

 

ACT 6 on Windows 10 Installation instructions

NB ACT 6 is not designed to work on Windows 10 so you may get a number of issues but after a request have re-published installation instructions below.

 

Instructions.

 

1 Copy software folder  onto desktop and click on the ACT 6 Folder

 

In the folder you are in you will see there is another ACT6 Folder.

 

2 Open this folder and right click on Setup.exe and select properties.

3 Under Compatibility tick run in compatibility mode and select Windows XP (SP3)

4 Also tick run this program as administrator. Now tick Apply and then OK.

 

Now click on this Setup.exe and it should install.

 

UPDATE -

 

Spent a bit more time on looking at integration etc and did the following.

 

Once installed made all Applications in the ACT folder to run in compatibility mode XP (see above)  and as administrator.

 

Selected ACT word processor as the default word processor.

 

Selected Internet Mail as the email system and set up.

 

Could then write letters and email via ACT 6 systems on Window 10 machine.
