ACT 2007 to 2009 Upgrade

I recently attempted to install ACT2009 over ACT2007. The installation failed, but in the process ACT2009 uninstalled ACT2007. Now I've reinstalled ACT2007 and when I double click the shortcut, the splash screen comes up, then the program just exits/crashes to desktop. I see this in the application event viewer. How do I fix this?

Re: ACT 2007 to 2009 Upgrade

Sorry, question, why would you go from a 6 year old version to a 4 year old (also unsupported) version? 


Need more info to help you.  Operating system, what steps have you taken?


My assumption is that this is a new Win 7 machine?
