Probably not. I believe the version of MSSQL required for ACT! 2006 isn't supported by Microsoft on Windows 8.

Re: Act 2006

Thanks Roy. Would you have any ideas on options to get my data from my current machine which runs on windows XP to windows 8.1. Would 2006 version 8 run on windows 7 pro?

You need to upgrade to ACT! 17. I doubt that ACT! 2006 will work on Win 7, same issue as Win 8. As to moving the data, simply use the ACT! backup to create a zip file and then do a restore as in the new version.

Roy, I see you are a cerified consultant. Would you be a person I would work with to upgrade to Act version 17?

Yes. I do charge for my services and I also sell the ACT!  program.

Re: Act 2006

I have multiple computers running act 2006 on windows 7 and have ran it once on Windows 8(They went back to Windows 7).  The only time I ran into issues with Act 2006 is installing it on newer server software, but with a good virtualization strategy you can get around that.
