Hello Gensner_360,
Welcome to the Sage ACT! Community.

Error translation:
"Sage ACT Pre-requisite installer has detected that the ACT7 instance is either disabled or not available."

Please see if the following Knowledgebase articles helps resolve the issue:

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
