Thanks for the reply.According to the Act page the version of Act 2007 I have should be Vista compatable. There should be a fix.( See below). But again it did not load/convert the 2000 database.

Some more information, hopefully it may give some info why it won't accept the data base.
I went to the Act site of the link above. I downloaded the latest version. When I went to install it it stopped and said I have the current version as indicated when I went to the help menu as you suggested.
I tried the getting started wizzard.
I selected > Convert a database that was created in Act versions 3X to 6X (my database in Act 2000 is 4.5 I think)
Next >Welcome to the Database Conversion Wizzard.
went to browse>
That is when I got the message "Attempted to reat or write protected memory. This is often an indication that the other memory is corrupt"

ACT! 2007 should work on Vista, although it was not designed for the O/S. First thing is to make sure that User Account Control (UAC) in Vista is disabled. The following Knowledgebase article gives you the steps to do this:
If UAC is not the issue, then the error you are receiving may also indicate a .NET issue within Vista. There is a command you can run that may fix this (do this after you have made sure UAC is disabled):
Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

I tried both suggestions. First I disabled the User Account Control successfully using method 1.After the restart I tried to import the Act 2000 database from my flash drive. I used the getting start wizzard in help. I received the same corrupt message half way through the process. I also tried going to file and trying to open the data base with the same result.
I then tried the scan as you suggested. I guess that is a dos test. After about 10 minutes I received "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations" For the hell of I tried to load the data base again, unfortunately unsuceesssfully.
Eventhough it did not work I appreciate your help and the time you spent researching this. If you can think of anything else I would appreciate it.
