Upgrading from ACT 2006 to ACT 2008 on a Vista machine - problems???

I'm getting ready to upgrade from ACT 2006 to ACT 2008 on a Windows Vista machine. Is there anything that I need to know before doing so? Thanks in advance for your help.

No you should be fine.  When you run the 10 installer it will uninstall 8 for you.  Make sure you backup your db before converting it.

I upgraded about two months ago and had to recreate all of my templates and merge documents - it was a real pain.

Thanks for that info. Over the years, every time I upgrade ACT, I have issues. This time wasn't as bad, but I really hate how it integrates it's self into everything, Outlook, MS Office, etc. I'd prefer it to give us an option when installing. Sorry to hear about your mishap.
