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.

2001 makes it ACT! 5.0 or earlier.

You can get the ACT! 6.0 30-day Trial from:
http://kb.sagesoftwareonline.com/cgi-bin/sagesoftwareonline.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=13192

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