Reinstalling ACT! 2010 on new laptop

I need to reinstall ACT! 2010. Is there access to a download portal somewhere? All I see is HotFix downloads.  I've already backed up my database and personal files. I do have my ACT! license saved. - Thanks in advanced for any help!

ACT! 2010 and Windows8 are not officially compatible, although you may be able to get it to work.  See:

ACT! 2010 download link is likely not available through ACT! since this version of ACT! is no longer officially supported.  If you send me a message to phillip@automatedsalestools.com I will reply with a link to download the software.

That likely means that the new laptop also has Office 2013 and you will need ACT! 16 to connect to Word and Outlook.

Re: Reinstalling ACT! 2010 on new laptop

Okay, so it looks like a new upgrade for ACT! is the way to go since I'm using Office 360. Are there any compatibility issues with Windows 8 or Office 360? And, can I just import my saved database from 2010? I have a lot of custom layouts, reports, etc. The last upgrade was painful, since I had to go back and redo everything. Thanks!
