Upgrading from ACT 10.0(2008) to a later version (2013) on a windows 8 Computer

Hello,

 

I just bought a new computer that runs windows 8 64 bit. I know that ACT 2008 doesn't support 64 bit and am thinking of upgrading to the latest version. My questions is how would I go about upgrading ACT 2008 on my new computer when it does not even open, and would I be able to transfer my old database to the newer ACT? 

 

Best,

Kenn

You install the new version of Act! on the new PC
You backup Act! on the old one to a ZIP file and copy that to the new one
You then Restore | Restore As - on the new PC
