off the top of my head, i can't remember where the admin rights are in vista. right now, i'm not using the vista machine, but i will turn it on and will list the options selected for admin rights.
i've run the uninstaller a few times, but it doesn't seem to remove what it should.
now that i've paritally manually uninstalled this mess, i'll run it again.
i will say, that out of all the software that i have ever installed and i've installed more software then most people, this is just too quirky. i didn't have this much trouble installing peoplesoft and oracle.
i really appreciate you taking the time to help me. act/sage should put you on the payroll for sure!The uninstaller.exe from the Knowledge Base (the first item in the list I sent you) is the one I mean. It will get everythingNot the one from the Control PanelThe problems are nearly always with the Microsoft components if there is something odd on the systemBTW: You remember I said to install Office before ACT!?Yeah, it would be nice to get paid for what I do

I've got ACT 2011 Premium that was working just fine on my Window 7 (64 bit) laptop. I recently tried to launch ACT and got an error that it couldn't open my database.
I uninstalled ACT! completely, ran the ACT uninstaller utility, and tried to reinstall. I keep getting stopped by the "1603" error. The file that is being installed when the error appears is ACT.ui.dll.
I've tried launching setup as an Admin with the same result (no luck).
Any advice is appreciated!
