Re: ACT 2005 7.0.4.82

What's the OS of the new computer. If it's Windows 7 ACT! 7 won't work.

Windows XP. But she has a new laptop which is Win7. I'll mention to her she should upgrade. For desktop restore its XP, though. So that will have to do for now..

The Microsoft .NET Framework and MSSQL use for ACT! 2005 version 7 aren't supported on Windows 7, I don't know about running Windows 7 in XM mode there is a big risk. If you run into problems there isn't any support for ACT! 7.

 

They also need to be aware that many of the problems associated with ACT! 7 were actually problems with the very early versions of the .NET framwork and MSSQL.

I wasn't very clear earlier (sorry):

The client owns a desktop which they intend to keep XP on for now. I had to wipe it, though, to clean up virus/etc. Reinstalled XP-SP3 clean. So I will still need to restore the database I created a back for (which I found instructions on via google). I also took screenshots of serials/etc (Act and others) before formatting. When they get more comfortable with windows 7, I will upgrade ACT for them but that day isn't today. Smiley Happy

 

The point here is the database is going to be restored under XP for now (and requires it anyway from what I am understanding.)

 

So the questions remains:

 

I still need links to the 2005 installer + any pertinent updates if possible.

Why not just have this on the website under a legecy downloads area? Certainly the program is old enough at this point (and you need a serial anyway) to merit being available openly. I also am not sure why the lastest patch I mentioned is not on the website for the same reasons. Any help is very appreciated.

Re: ACT 2005 7.0.4.82

I have had the same issues & am looking for 7.04 updates for a re-formatted XP computer.

I tried to install the update via Help / Updates, but process stopped, saying (Incorrectly) that some programs needed to be closed down.

Installation is on 7.3.99 & data files appear to be on 7.04.**

Cannot use ACT as is -  Where can I access the latest update for ACT! 7?

 

Thanks

Hello barney48,
Welcome to the ACT! Community. I could not locate the 7.0.4 update, but I can send you the full install for that version. You will need to uninstall your current version of ACT! 2005 and install the updated version. Please send me your ACT! 2005 serial number via Private Message in this forum and I will send you the link.
