Re: Act 2010 and Outlook 2010

Hello kyoung,

In regards to ACT! 2010 and Office 2010, the decision was made several months ago not to issue an update that would enable compatibility. However, one of our developement partners recently developed an inexpensive add-on that does enable ACT! 2010 to work with Office 2010. You can get the free trial and more information here:

The latest version, ACT! 2011, does support Office 2010.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

Hi,

 

Will the fix posted in the link earlier have any chance of working with 64bit windows?

 

Thanks

Laura

It will work on a 64-bit O/S, but not with the 64-bit version of Office. Since ACT! does not work with 64-bit Office (very few apps do), I don't see the designer making their link work with it either. 32-bit Office will work just fine on a 64-bit O/S, as will ACT! 2010 and higher.

Re: Act 2010 and Outlook 2010

Even Microsoft recommend installing Office as x32 on an x64 OS ... unless needed to work with things like Excel files >2GB

A lot of products (including some of Microsoft's) can't talk to Office x64.

See: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/choose-the-32-bit-or-64-bit-version-of-microsoft-office-...
Important The 32-bit version of Office 2010 is the recommended option for most people, because it prevents potential compatibility issues with other 32-bit applications, specifically third-party add-ins that are available only for 32-bit operating systems.
