Installing in Vista - APPCRASH

Trying to install ACT on my "newer" computer with Vista.  I had read that I should uninstall any old ACT! presence on my computer, which I did.


I rebooted, just to be safe, and reloaded ACT and asked it to "launch" at the end of the process and then up popped, "ACT! 9x/2007 has stopped working"


I have 9.0.557.0




Don't know if any of the "Problem Details" helps or note:

ACT! 2007 didn't actually support Vista when released, and won't work if your Vista is 64bit...


The best option is the upgrade.


At very least, you need to download and apply the 9.01 update

Re: Installing in Vista - APPCRASH

ACT! 9.0 is not going to install properly on a Vista O/S. You will need the most current version of ACT! 2007 (9.0.1 with Vista hotfix). Please send me your ACT! serial number for verification via Private Message and I will be happy to send you a download link.

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