I just installed Windows 7 on a new computer and wonder if anyone has had any luck running 2009 on Windows 7. Specifically the 64bit version.
I will try it next week.

Okay I have looked everywhere for the answer you are looking for, gave up, and installed ACT! 2009 Premium Successfully.
USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS AT YOUR OWN RISK. - if you are running Windows 7 RC or beta builds then this should be a given.
I am Running:
Here is exactly what I did. DO NOT RUN ACT! UNTIL THE INSTRUCTIONS SAY TO.
This took me about 45 minutes. I took my time and didn't have the instructions above, so it will likely go faster for you
Don't rush it though. Let the ACT! and SQL installers do there thing and DON'T MULTITASK the computer and you will be fine.
Good luck, and I hope this helps some folks out there.

Having a minor snag. SQL Server ACT7 does not start automatically. Set it to keep trying on all attempts, but still have to start it manually.
Running Windows 7 64 bit.
Could live with it, but prefer not to if it can be help.

-I have two seats and one server.
-Server OS is 2008 server.
-Seat #1: OS will be Windows 7
-Seat #2: OS is VISTA
My question--when I update seat #1 and follow your directions, specifically installing SQL 2005 Express, will I need to update the server and seat #2 with the SQL 2005 Express?
