Act 6 word processor and outlook not workingin vista

Hi with all the adverse publicity about ACT 2008 I am sticking to my ACT 6.3 which does me well.
I have set Act up the on my new Dell using Vista  and have loaded word 2003 which sits along with the Word 97 already loaded,Works well but not the Word prcessor , I downloaded the hotfix  but still get the message (inadequate permissions on Word Windows etc, then drivers not loaded) Also the Outlook does not work prompting "Outlook 98 or newer neeeded" message.
 
Is it worth my while persevering for a solution?
 
Thanks

  1. ACT! 6 isn't supported on Vista, so there may be parts that don't operate correctly
  2. If you look through these forums, you'll find that ACT! 10 is much better than the 7/8 versions that did have bad reviews
  3. Running multiple versions of Word might confuse ACT!...
  4. That error can also happen if you have NAV installed when installing ACT!. Are you running Norton Anti Virus?
