Act 5.0 word processor and Vista

I just loaded Act 5.0 on a Vista machine.  Now when I go to write a document, it says "Failed to connect to Act word processor. Word processor driver not running"
 
Is there a patch for this?

No there isn't. The only option is to upgrade to ACT! 2008.

Not true, I'm not sure about Vista, but I have office 2007 with ACT 5.0 and I installed work 2003 to run simultaneously with word 2007. I made word 2003 my default word processor and haven't had a problem since : ) (Thanks to my brilliant IT guy)

ACT! 5.0 didn't even properly work with Office 2003 (which was added in ACT! 6.0)... some functions might not work
