updating ACT

when I try to update ACT I get an error message that tells me that the internet connection required to check for updates could not be made.  I am online as I do this so I looked around a bit and found that this is an issue that other users have had but I have not seen that a fix has been issued

I have ACT 2000, version 5 on Windows XP.  Thank you for your response.

Re: updating ACT

If you version is 5.0.0 (check at Help | About ACT!) the update would be referring to Symantec and they no longer would carry any updates. Try downloading the update from www.act.com.

I´ve tried to update my ACT 2000, german language. After I´ve installed the update to 5.04, nearly (you read correct: nearly) whole ACT is english. Only the menu topics under the top menu is german. So for example: Top menu "Write", submenues are "Brief" (english: Letter). Thats a little bit weird. I´d reupdate to normal version, so everything is german. Is there no language update available?

Not sure if 5.04 was released for German... you might ask one of the German ACT! Consultants from:

We worked with quite a few when making our MergeMaster! email merge product work with the German version and could recommend Ingo at:
