Act 2000

Thanks to all that answer these questions!

 

I have act 2000 and i'm thinking of getting a new dell 8500 computer and a new Apple IPhone.

The dell is going to come with windows 7.

Question: Am I going to have any problems here?

Thanks,

Greg

Re: Act 2000

Yes, you will ... even more so if using a new version of Office.

You should upgrade your ACT! and probably get Handheld Contact for the iPhone

Re: Act 2000

Yes. If you want to run ACT! 2000 (5.0) on W7x64 it is VERY simple. Go to the ACT folder on the CD and run setup from there.

 

The problem is the MENU (which is opened from setup in the root) won't run. I am running ACT! 2000 (5.0) on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

 

============

 

If you want to use the ACT! Word Processor Send the ACT! 2000 icon to the desktop (create shortcut) then do the following:

 

1. Right click the ACT! 2000 icon

2. Click Properties-Compatibility-Run this program as an Administrator

3. Click OK

 

or do this which also works:

 

1. Right click the ACT! 2000 icon

2. Click Properties-Compatibility-Run this program in Compatibility mode for:

3. Select Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or 3) (both of them work)

4. Click OK
