Act 6 and Act 2011

I want to try Act 2011 and see if it's worth upgrading.

Can I run both Act 6 and Act 2011 at the same time and just input daily into each program while testing out 2011?

Thanks

Roy,

While waiting for a reply I called ACT and spoke to a sales rep.  I was told that I can't have both ACT 6 and ACT 2011 running on the same computer.

Please explain why I am getting 2 different answers.

Thanks

Re: Act 6 and Act 2011

The Sales Rep is incorrect. YOU can have ACT 6 and a newer version of ACT on the same computer.  The newer version witll take over the Word Processor and Outlook (email) integration, but you can view them both.

That link doesn't work, Trainer.

As Jon said ... the only issue with have a 6.0 (or earlier) and a later version is that only one can connect to email/word.

Re: Act 6 and Act 2011

Hello Mike, actually I have another issue: I just replace my Act 6 with the 2011 version and  I need add my logo (jpg picture) to Email message from Template.  In Editing Template I can paste the picture and see it but when they receive the mail is not there. I wish you can help me out

I have ACT 2011 Pro  and  Office 2007, the options are:

In Communication I selected " Microsoft Word 2003,2007...

In ACT! Email Editor - Composing Options HTLM is selected

In Email & Outlook Sync   Email Systems: Internet Mail

                                               ACT! E-mail Client

and  I don't use Outlook.
