Re: Windows 10 update and Act!

So, at no stage in the process did you see that the Outlook version was 16.0.4229. To put it another way; it wasn't a case of it downgrading to .4229 briefly and then reverting to 8201 shortly after?

It was a continuous process it never indicated which version. I had to open Outlook to see. I've tried to run it again but nothing changed.

Re: Windows 10 update and Act!

When it comes to troubleshooting the downgrade process, it's somewhat out of our area of specialty due to it running a Microsoft installer, however I can try and share as much insight as I have to help out.

 

The instruction the version reverting batch file is running is below:

 

cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun
officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.4229.1024

The first line is locating the folder where the MS installer is held

The second is where the installer is run with additional parameters.

 

I would therefore try the following steps:

  • Try running the batch file as administrator in Windows
  • Double check that you have full access permissions to this folder
  • Temporarily pause any anti-virus software running

Re: Windows 10 update and Act!

I ran this:

 

cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.4229.1024

 

 

and I think it did downgrade my Outlook to 4229 version. Still can't seem to integrate though. Any other solutions?

Re: Windows 10 update and Act!

What is the exact issue you're geting? Any error messages?

You can confirm if the downgrade has gone through by opening Outlook and going to File > Office Account > About Outlook

Re: Windows 10 update and Act!

We currently have ACT Pro v20, thinking about updating all our computers to Windows10, we heavily use the XACT QB accounting link, the Knowtifier, Organizer X (Scan & Organize), and Exponenciel's Automatic Field Calculations add-ons. Have any of you guys come across problems with ACT (v20) and any add-ons you use when you updated your computers to Windows 10?

Have clients that use Act! Pro v20 (not SP1) with Topline Designer (for Custom Tables). No problems at all. They use built-in calculated fields. Not going to 20.1 because they are still using Office 2010.

Re: Windows 10 update and Act!

Ok...well I guess the only way to find out if it all works is to try.
We have 4 Pro v20 users. Our DB is on a 5th computer. So that's 5 computers all running windows 7, that I need to update to windows 10. So I figured I will start with 1 computer...saving the 4th and last computer that houses our shared files for last. I'm not an IT person at all, so please somebody correct me if I'm wrong. Upgrading 1 computer to Windows 10 while everyone else stays on Windows 7 shouldn't be an issue right? Thanks in advance.

That is fine as long as you stay on the same version of Act! and the same version of SQL Server Express.
