Will Act!2000 run on Windows 2008 Standard Server?

I saw a message in the threads that said that Act!2000 won't run on any 64 bit OS then later in the same thread I saw that it will, but you have to run the installer directly from the Act folder and not the menu. 

 

I'm trying to get clarification.

It "might" work with the database on the server and the client connecting to it... you may need to look up how to disable opportunistic record locking on Win2008. ACT! 5/6 had issues if it wasn't disabled.

ACT! 2000 didn't need the application installed on the server
