ACT 2010 Standard will not Open ACT 2008 Premium database

I just upgraded to ACT 2010 Standard, which will not open or upgrade my ACT 2008 Premium database.

 

The dialog box suggests that I should use my previous version of ACT to save the database as "standard" so ACT 2010 can open it.  However, the installation of ACT 2010 required that I uninstall my previous version, so I can't do that.  Also, ACT 2008 installation sensed that 2010 was installed so oi can't even reinstall that to re-save the file.

 

Please help!!  Must get database restored in ACT 2010 ASAP!!!!

 

Many thanks.

Uninstall ACT! 2010. Install ACT! 2008 Premium. Open the database and save as Standard 2008. Uninstall ACT! 2008 Premium. Install ACT! 2010. Open ACT! 2008 Standarddata file with ACT! 2010 and allow it to convert. Your old ACT! 2008 Premium install files are probably to be found at C:\ACT!2008. Alternatively you need to install from ACT! 2008 Premium CD.
