Implementing additional report options requires a change to your computer’s registry. Prior to making any changes to the registry, you should back up your current registry. To back up the appropriate registry key:
1. Open your registry editor by clicking Start > Run, and typing regedit.
2. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ACT on a 32-bit Operating System, or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ACT on a 64-bit Operating System
3. Right click the key, and choose Export.
4. Type a name, such as ACTRegBackup, and click Save.
