Can I buy a few copies of ACT!2008(10) and will it run on a Windows 2003 server?

Can I buy a few copies of ACT!2008(10) and will it run on a Windows 2003 server?  My client uses Windows 2003 server and xp workstations(5 users?)) They use Office/outlook 2003. They also use MS Remote Desktop Connection for the users to access server remotely. Their systems are a bit old but still powerful enough.  I need to get them at least one copy so they can test drive it. Thank you - FSB

If they don't have ACT! already why not go to ACT! 2012? Copies of ACT! 2006 would be hard to find and I personally wouldn't trust one that I found on a place like eBay.

Hey Roy,

 

They need ACT!2008(10)..  They use office2003/outlook2003. the newer ACT!2012 requires Outlook 2010( possibly 2007?).

Thats a major expense to upgrade all users to newer Office suite including purchasing a round of ACT! for everyone.. ACT!2008 is perfect solution for them, then I can sell them my ATS ACT! add-on.... So where have all the resellers gone with ACT!2008?  Thanks - FSB.

ACT! 2012 works with Office 2003, it's what I use.

Roy,

Well bust my britches. Sum1 told me office2003 would not work with ACT!2012.

Will ACT!2012 pro run on windows server 2003 ?

Thanks - FSBill.
