Also, since many attempts at installing Act!, my Outlook has a hard time opening.  I get "The Operation Failed" a couple of times before opening Outlook.  what a nightmare........

Re: Cannot Install Act! 2010

This is my first time posting in this commuity ... or any for that matter....

 

 

I am a MAC user... trying to install ACT 2010.  

 

I have done the following:

 

Installed Parells 4.0

Downloaded the link ACT sent me 

The installation gets to a point where it never tells me "installation complete"  ....Windows XP re-boots on its own... and keeps rebooting.  

 

Two days of my life gone to this nonsense.  

 

ACT supports is horrible.  45 minutes on hold... and still no answer. 

 

Anyone... anyone... please help!

 

Thank you very much

lackman22,

 

What is the guest operating system you are installing ACT! onto?

 

The behavior sounds like it may Windows XP SP2?

 

If this is the case, please apply XP Service Pack 3, the install you ACT! 2010 application again.

 

This is a known Microsoft issue that is addressed in Microsoft KB Articles 943232 and 921337.

 

thanks
