ACT! 2008 run in Windows 7 Business in XP Mode?

[ Edited ]

How were you able to get ACT! 2008 to work in Windows XP Mode? I keep getting an error after it lets me log in that it cannot find the supplemental database files. Please help!

Thank you. Rhonda

Can you provide some additional information:

- is this database local to your computer or a shared database that resides on a host?

- can you open the ACT! demo database without issue?

Thank you for your response! It is a shared database on a host. I am able to open the ACT! demo database. Is ACT! compatible with XP mode on Windows 7?

Thanks again!

Rhonda

Having the demo database open successfully shows that ACT! is running correctly in the XP mode.  For the message you are receiving with the shared database, review the steps in this article: KB Article 19876

 

If the Share option is enabled, try the last option of updating the PAD file and using IP address.  If that doesn't resolve it, try the other steps.

I have ACT 6.0 and currently run on Windows XP Business.  If I switch to Windows 7, will it still run?

I was able to have Act 2008 run with Windows 7. The problem I had was ACT 2008 won't run with Office 2010.
