Act! 2006 Performance Issues

I'm sure you've heard this one before, but my goodness, what do I have to do to improve the performance of Act! 2006???  I have a fast hard drive, plenty of ram, and I am not ignorant when it comes to computers, and have done every trick in the book to speed it up.  I have no issues with any other program but this one.

 

Anyone know of any secrets that I can use to improve performance?

Re: Act! 2006 Performance Issues

Thanks for responding, but that article only tells me the obvious ways to try and improve performance.  I have seen absolutely none when I have done all those tricks and plenty more that the article doesn't mention.  Is the code just written poorly in this program?  I've heard the other solution too, "Buy the newest version".  But why should I if I can't even get this version, which we bought a while back, to work properly?

Re: Act! 2006 Performance Issues

Part of your problem is the fact that ACT! 2006 use Microsoft .NET 1.1 and MSDN while ACT! 2007 and later was able to use the much improved .NET 2 and MSSQL Express. Like most program, the ACT! program is an evolutionary program. ACT! 2005 represented a complete rewrite of the program, the first since ACT! 3 so speed improvements should be expected with the later versions.
