HELP! ACT 6 conflicting with Windows 2003!

We just changed our server to a Windows 2003.  As a result, we are getting nonstop fatal errors.  We can hardly work.  It seems that ACT 6 is not compatible with our server edition.  Until we upgrade ACT, what can we do to help the program function reasonably?

Re: HELP! ACT 6 conflicting with Windows 2003!

You might have some problems running ACT! 6 on Windows Server 2003 but if you are only hosting the database on the server you should not have any problems. You do need to make sure that opportunistic locking is turned off on the server or else you can experience database corruption. If ACT! 6 is installed on the server, run ACTDIAG there and in the File menu, use the opportunistic locking option.

ACT! 6 shouldn't have an issue with Windows Server 2003... many users are doing just that.
What makes you think it's ACT!?
 
Are the errors in ACT! or Windows?
