Upgrade from ACT! 2000 to ACT! 2008

Hi all.

I was wondering if anyone had any experience in converting from ACT 2000 to ACT 2008?

I'm having an issue where it says:

Conversion has been halted with the following message:

Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.

 

I have checked out the forum and only seen one similar post.

This is the second computer that i have tried now, (1gb ram, loads of hdd space etc) and the database itself is about 16MB. Any idea how to cure this problem? Should i be trying to use an older version to convert the database to first?

In all likelihood you have corruption in the database that you are converting. What exactly the problem might be with the database is very difficult to say. The fact that you can open the database in ACT! 2000 indicates that the repairs can likely be done without sending the database in for repair.

Hey Roy, thanks for the reply.

How would you recommend checking for errors in the database?

I have tried to compress and index the database, but nothing seems to happen when try and do that.

Right, here goes.

I have done several repairs and reindexes and then tried to convert the database but it failed in the conversion again.

 

Here is the repair log for the act 2000 database (act 2000 actdiag)

Re: Upgrade from ACT! 2000 to ACT! 2008

With ACT! 2000, all the ACT! email client did was dump the outgoing message into the Outlook outbox. Because many viruses channeled through Outlook, Microsoft has kept tightening up on third party access to Outlook. My guess is that a recent update to Outlook is the source of the problem.

Re: Upgrade from ACT! 2000 to ACT! 2008

Hello. I know it's been a while, but what did you have to do to fix this problem? I am trying to convert a 2000 DB to 2010 and am receiving the same sort of record manager errors.
