ACT 11 will not load

After receiving the following error message:

I then installed a new copy of ACT 11, and received the same error message.  Is this a 32 bit/64 bit issue?

Thanks, LeeR

Re: ACT 11 will not load

That's usually a .net issue, and not a 32 bit/64 bit.  ACT will run on a 64 bit OS just fine.  Here's a couple of KB's that might point you in the right direction.  Also, Symantec has been know to cause this error by blocking access to the Appdata folder where Act needs to load things.
