Act! 6.02 install

Was running ACT! 6.02 on Vista with no problem.  Had to remove it and then reinstall.  I can't get the install process to work.  The files are on the CD but Setup starts and then stops without installng any files.  ANY THOUGHTS?  I disabled the firewall, anti virus etc.  Still no luck.  It this a VISTA problem.  Remember, I had istalled ACT and it was running fine prior to its removal.

 

I had to use the Symantec removal tool to remove their software and its use required that ACT be removed first.

 

Thanks

Problem Solved.  Actually, on the ACT CD you need to bypass the SetUP executable on the parent directory and go to the ACT setup in the ACT directory on the CD.  It installs from there. I don't know why...it just works and rund properly.  Thanks for resonding.

Re: Act! 6.02 install

There has been no formal testing of ACT! 6 on Vista. I've heard of some people that have it running on Vista and others that can't get it to install on Vista. All things considered, you should consider upgrading to ACT! 2009.

Re: Act! 6.02 install

It might have been some Vista update since the previous install that's stuffing it up.

 

I've heard of users who have had it working and others where it can't be installed... unfortunately, no-one is being paid to determine the possible causes.

 

Maybe copting the CD to a folder on the hard drive and installing from there.
