ACT 2006 version 8 doesn't work with windows 10 ?

Hello, I had ACT installed on my old windows 7 PC. I just upgrade my PC and it's windows 10 now. I tried to install ACT on windows 10 and it gave me error about incompatibility. So, what could be the possible solution ?

You have 2 problems and one is not solvable.

 

It would be possible to get ACT 2006 to install on windows 10 using a compatibility install and working round the message but -

 

ACT 2006 can no longer be licenced or activated.

 

ACT changed its licencing system and only ACT V18 and above can be licenced.

 

So sorry to say but even if we got ACT 2008 installed on Windows 10 you would never be able to use it.
