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

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.

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.
