Database is on laptop and office computer. HandHeld Contact is unknown to me. I'll look at it.
Thank you.

Re: Compatibility with Windows RT

Hi There

 

Officially, Windows 8 is not on the supported list of windows OS's for ACT.  I have however installed and used ACT Prem 2013 on a windows 8 machine, so far with no issues.  I can't speak for the RT version.  It really depends what spec the Tablet is you are using.  CPU, Ram, HDD space etc.

 

What version of ACT do you have?

ACT 2010 (12) ?  That's even before windows 7.

 

What type and speed processor? Just for your reference, this was the Min Sys Req for ACT 2010,

Note what you're trying to install it on, wont be listed.

You may get it to install, but could be buggy.  Or just may not install at all.  It's a case of try your luck and see I guess.

No, all tablets, Android, iPad etc can access the mobile version via a web browser.

But you'd need the premium for web version installed on your ACT server.

Thanks again--that won't work for me; I'm a sole user. ACT is really overkiill for me but I've been using for over 20 years and I've too much history, etc. to give it up.

Where is your ACT database currently?  If you keep that operational, you can always have a look at HandHeld Contact for your tablet.

Handheld Contact seems to work very well on my iPhone--thank you again.
