Older version of ACT - Compatible with Windows Vista Home Edition

I've been using a 2001 version of act Build 5.0.4.495 on a laptop running XP Home Edition. I'm considering buying a new Compaq laptop that has Vista Home as the operating system. Does anyone know if I'll be able to load this old version of the program?

ACT! 2000 (5.0) didn't even fully support XP without a patch... so it's unlikely that many functions would work under Vista.

 

Best to get the upgrade to ACT! 2009 when you get the new laptop

Thank you! After posting the question I found some valuable info by Googling & you're right on. Now I need to decide whether to bite the bullet & get the newest version of ACT or switch to a completely different CRM program. I don't need anything too high tech for my real estate contacts. The biggest issue I see is trying to move the ACT data into something else.

ACT! 2009 is definately the best version of ACT! to-date... well worth the upgrade
