Upgrading to latest version



I have been using ACT! by Sage 2008 (10.0) Version, Hotfix 3 English (United Kingdom) for a year or so and have built quite a large database with lots and lots of fields (probably somewhere in the region of 1,000).  The problem that I am having is that it runs very slooooooooooly.  It takes about 5 seconds to move from one field to another which is about as exciting as watching paint dry!  The program is a 3 user licence which I used to run off the server but now I just run it from a stand alone machine which is a dual core pentium 4 processor with 2 gig ram.


Just wondered whether the techies have done anything about the speed of act. 


I started with version 2007 then upgraded to 2008 but I am reluctant to upgrade again.


If anyone knows I would love to hear your comments.

Re: Upgrading to latest version

ACT! 2009 did improve speed over 2008.


But, it shouldn't take that long to move between fields in your version unless there is something odd happening.


You might try the suggestions (especially the video settings) in this ACT! Knowledge Base article -
