I have installed Act 2008 with Outlook 2002. When I try to access e-mail from ACT, I get a message that says "Attempt to read or write to protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt. I do not have any issues using Outlook. After spending a LONG time with Act tech support, the recommendation is to completely remove ACT, all the SQL components, MS Office, and reinstall in the reverse order. This is a LOT of trouble. Does anyone have any other idea of the situation or a different solution.
I had previously run a repair from the Office CD. When I ran Detect and Repair from the Help menu in Outlook, it only said it repaired Front Page. That could be because I loaded Office first, then loaded Front Page from a different CD.
When I was working with the ACT support people, they did something with the .NET Framework, so I assume they tried this fix already. The final diagnosis from ACT support was that my Outlook was at fault. They suggested completely uninstalling ACT, the SQL component, and Office and reinstalling the Office from the CD and reinstalling ACT. With all the other postings in the forum about problems with ACT and the time required to do this, I was not willing to take the time when there is a likelihood that it won't fix the issue.
