More On Act! & Windows 10


Although the current version of Act! (v17) is fully supported in Windows® 10, we strongly recommended performing a complete backup of your Act! database prior to upgrading Windows® as well as confirming that your drivers and other applications are also compatible with Windows 10

If you do decide to upgrade to Windows 10, here are some additional recommendations to make your transition as smooth as possible

For known issues and workarounds for using Act! v17 and later with Windows® 10, please visit Act's Knowledgebase Article #38170.  

Note: Previous versions of Act! may have issues with Windows® 10 that cannot be resolved; review Knowledgebase Article #38170 above for details. Future releases of Act! will be fully tested and supported on Windows® 10.
