    I have just purchased a new HP laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium on it and I would like to use my ACT! 2006 software with it. The Sage website says it is not compatible and will not be supported on Vista.

    Has anyone tried this anyways? Do the basic features work? Did it install at all?

    Before I make a mess of my new laptop...I figured I would ask if anyone has attempted this.

    Can't you make Vista go retro?
    In XP, there was a compatibility set back for certain programs that didn't work on XP. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there the same thing for Vista?

    ACT! 2006 used MS SQL 2000 and Microsoft have said they will not make SQL 2000 run on Vista. So the only choice is to upgrade to ACT! 2007 which uses SQL 2005
