Important Licensing Notice for Act! Customers
We were recently informed that an embedded third-party software component of Act! that facilitates licensing services would be discontinued by the manufacturer at the end of 2018. Once retired, standard subscription entitlement checks and/or certain common actions you may take that interact with the licensing component will cause Act! to fail and you will no longer be able to access your database. Examples of these common actions include attempting to install Act! on new hardware, modifying existing hardware, and modifying your user count. For an expanded list of actions, click here.
