will Act 2009 run on windows 7

will Act 2009 run on windows 7? I read somewhere that it could work but it requires MS office installed --- if that is the case would Office 2003 suffice or do I also have to purchase the latest version of Office?

Re: will Act 2009 run on windows 7

While Act! 2009 has not 'certified' on a Windows7 64-bit operating system, it will install and run.  See this community post for discussions on installing and running in this scenario: Act! Forum thread 24055.  You should be able to install without any special steps.

 

As for the version of Office: Office doesn't have to be installed for Act! to work, but if you want to integrate the applications - Outlook must be installed before the Act! program.  Act! 2009 is compatible with Office 2003 and 2007, you can use either.

Re: will Act 2009 run on windows 7

Our company has been using a few Windows 7 machines for a while now. We didn't do anything different when installing ACT 2009 on these than we would for a Vista or XP machine, and have not had one problem yet. We are using Office 2007, but as already mentioned it shouldn't be a reequirement to get ACT working.
