Installing ACT 2000 on a 64 bit system.

Re: Installing ACT 2000 on a 64 bit system.

For the ACT Word processor?  Not to my knowledge.  This version of ACT has been unsupported for some time.  Especially if you're talking about using it on a new OS.

 

You may wish to take a look at this KB Article, to see if it helps you at all.  Bearing in mind that it was written prior to the release of the OS you're currently using.

 

If anyone else has some other suggestions, feel free to jump in.

ACT 2000 runs fine on my other computer using Windows 6 but 32 bits. Its just this 64 bit system. Thanks though.

I'd say it's unlikely to work ... but you might try disabling UAC in windows

The point is that Microsoft ended many legacy entry point to the operating system with Windows 7. While parts of ACT! 2000 will run without problems, other parts won't. this means that you have no idea when or how some part of the ACT! program will fail. Assuming that you value your ACT! data, you are playing with fire and the potantial loss of data.

How do you install ACT! 2000 on Windows 10?  Setup.exe on the CD does not do anything.

How can I install ACT! 2000 on Windows 10?  The setup.exe on the CD does nothing.  I need to migrate my data to something useful.

Your best bet would be to upgrade to ACT! 18

Is there a trial version of ACT! 18 so I can verify my data?

Re: Installing ACT 2000 on a 64 bit system.

I have ACT 2000 and I also have Windows 10 and ACT works just fine with it.  I also have Microsoft word 2007.   I wonder fi the people saying ACT 2000 will not work with windows 10 are just saying that to get people to upgrade.
