Is ACT! Pro 2013 Compatible with Windows 8.1?

I need to upgrade the laptop on which I run ACT! Pro 2013 as a private database. My old laptop runs Windows Vista. If I buy a new laptop that runs Windows 8.1, will my ACT! still work or do I need to stick with Windows 7.0 or 8.0? Also, will it affect my database if my old laptop has a 64-bit operating system but the new one is 32-bit?

I've had 2013 running in W 8.1 for a while with no problems.

Quick question - I just puchased a new All-in-One Gateway with Windows 8....I have upgraded my ACT from 2009 to 2013, and my database from 2009 will not restore on the new desktop and Act 2013 - it continues to supply a long error message - anyone have a solution? I have checked administratir settings, but to no prevail.

Are you doing a restore or a restore as. Restore only works to the same computer.
