Which to install first?

Hi,

 

I need to re-install of my software on a new PC and can't remember which I install first - ACT 2008 (v10) or Office2007?

1) Make sure the machine is up to date with Microsoft Critical Updates.

2) Install Office 2007 first and setup your Outlook to your liking. 

3) Reboot. 

4) Then install ACT!

 

thanks

Thanks Matthew.  I have a brand new laptop with Vista Home Premium with SP1.  I have turned windows update off as I find it loads a lot of unecessary stuff - do you think I need to enable and install the critical updates or will SP1 suffice?

You should be fine then,

 

Is this a 64bit operating system?  If it is, I am afraid your ACT! 2008 product isn't going to work, you would need version 2009.

 

thanks
