My old computer running Act 6.03 crashed, and I bought Act 2010. I have been unable to convert my old database. My new computer runs Windows 7 OS. I tried to use a friend's computer running Windows XP, and I downloaded the Act 6 - 30 day free trial. My attempt to convert the database was unsuccessful.
In my attempt to convert my database, the computer said "No DDF file found," and I received a "CRITICAL ERROR #53" That was several months ago, and the trial version has expired.
Can anyone provide any guidance?

The error you are getting is because you do not have all of the files to make up an ACT 6 database. What do you have? Is it a backup or just a copy of some files?
Do you still have access to the old drive?
I have a couple of clients using Windows 7 and ACT! 6 but it can be tricky to configure. If you wish to discuss further maybe send me an offline message.
