Yes but if you also have Office 2010 you need ACT! 2011.

Hi, so Act 2010 doesn't work with Office 2010? Can you elaborate as to why it doesn't work?  We're upgrading to new computers that will come with Office 2010, but would like to continue using Act 2010...

 

Thanks

Two reasons, ACT! 2010 was released 6-months before Office 2010 and Microsoft dropped support of many of the legacy external connections to the Office programs. Restoring the connection of the ACT! program Office 2010 required a major upgrade to the ACT! program which was implemented in ACT! 2011.

If you would still like to use ACT! 2010 with Office 2010, you can obtain an add-on product that will make the 2 talk to each other.
