ACT 11.1 compaitbility with Windows 7 Professional

Has this been fixed? I am ready to migrate away from ACT but want to check one last time before I go. Can this version be used on Windows 7?

It hasn't been tested but likely will work.

I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise if that helps.  So far everything has worked fine.  The biggest problem I continually run into is a D.E.U.

Re: ACT 11.1 compaitbility with Windows 7 Professional

I have my 11.0 version installed and working fine on my new Windows 7 64bit.  My problem is I can't get the update to load.  Keeps saying I need to be an administrator to download the update that is showing in the help menu.  I am the only user of this computer and in the Act preferences, I am logged on as Administrator.

Is there anywhere I can download this update?

After that I'll try again to migrate my back-up data over, which has also been an issue.

With Windows 7, the UAC function will prevent you from performing 'Windows administrator level' functions.  To get around this, you will need to start the program using the 'Run as administrator' option.

 

- Close Sage ACT!

- Right click on the ACT! icon

- Select 'Run as administrator'

- Attempt update
