I need to get into Act 5 before I import the data into Act 2011. I have installed Act 5 (Act Win 7) on a stand alone computer, using the trial version, instead of registering it. I finally found the user name and password for the database I'm trying to look at, but Act is giving me a message that says : Your framework must be updated.
I click "Yes" and at the bottom of the screen (running Vista) a pop up says "click to download Act updates" ... I click it and a box pops up that says there is a download, I click to download, but nothing downloads.
I have visited
to locate an Act 5 download, but when I downloaded it for 7.0.3 it said the update was for workgroups only.
Can anyone shed light on this? I need to look at the data before I import it and Act 5 (Act Win 7) is the latest copy of Act I have.
I am lost and I appreciate your help!

It's Act 2005, v. 7.0.3. I will try to open it on Act 2011.
Thanks for your prompt response.
I was wondering why I couldn't update it and now that I know it won't run on Vista, that takes a lot of my headache away!
My Best to you and yours ::

ACT 2005 (which you are doing) was version 7.0 and it won't work on a windows 7 machine. YOu need to find and install aCT 6.0 (2004).
My best sugestion would be to NOT try and make this work on your Win 7 machine especially if you are doing a conversion. way too many steps to just open the thing up.
