I've been doing a lot of importanting into ACT recently, and it appears that I have to run ACT as an Admininstrator instead of just being the administrator of the single user program.
I'm interested in knowing how and why ACT makes the distinction. I would think that would be a feature that would be desired or at least controlled by the administrator.
Thanks if you care to share your comments - or if I'm doing something wrong.

The distincion isn't being made in Act! this is a windows function called UAC. The link below will give more information on this topic.
If you want to always run Act! as an admin: right click the Act! shortcut and go to properties, then click the compatibility tab, check the run as admin box. This is the same as everytime right clicking and selecting run as admin.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

I am trying to open ACT in Administrator mode. When I right click on Act and click on properties, there is no compatibility option. any suggestions on how to run ACT as Administrator? Trying to sync a database and it won't let me.

I would like to add to this. I have had to use the Run as Administrator on two machines now for both Outlook 2013 and Act! Premium Version 184.108.40.206, Update 1 because we could not use email templates. Now the email templates work but if I try to drag a file onto an open Outlook message, I get an error message. I have to attach files from within Outlook now.
This is a pain...
