2001 makes it ACT! 5.0 or earlier.

You can get the ACT! 6.0 30-day Trial from:

You can then convert the database to 6.0, repair/clean it and then convert it

It's an old laptop the import wizard in Outlook says I need to install ACT 3.0 or 4.0 to perform the import. The files are dated from 1998 through 2001.
