My ACT ver 8 developed an error (object reference not set to object) from which I was not able to recover. Followed all of theKB articles without success. ACT 8 would not run, not uninstall, not repair. I finally uninstalled it manually.
Tried to reinstall and it wanted previous version, which for me is ACT 6. Install successful, ran, opened demo databases. Would not update itself - said it couldn't find internet, though I was connected and ACT itself could open web pages.
However, ACT 8 still won't install - still says it can't find previous versions. I can't find anything in KB that seems to relate to this.
My data is in ACT 8, and I synch with another computer, so I really need this to work.
