You may want to print this page, then follow the steps
outlined to download and install the ACtoCDF program.
Download the Program:
First, create a new folder on your PC where
you will save the ACtoCDF download file (ACtoCDFPkg.exe) and the
extracted files that you will use to install the ACtoCDF application. I
suggest you put these in a new folder on the C drive named ACtoCDF.
In other words, create the folder C:/ACtoCDF.
Click on the Download link on this page or
any page of the ACtoCDF web site. There you see links to
download the program and optionally, purchase a license. If you elect
to purchase the license, fill
in your email address, and click the pay now button. Follow the PayPal
instructions to make your payment, then return to the download web
page. Near the bottom
the link 'Click Here to Download ACtoCDF'.
You should get a new little window that asks if you want to Open
the file ACtoCDFPkg.exe. Click the Save option. Save the file
in the new folder you created for that purpose (C:/ACtoCDF).
Note: ACtoCDF download file is a self extracting WinZip
file. Your web service and firewalls must allow the downloading
of a type .exe (executable file).
Extract the files:
After you save the file,
the folder in which you saved the file and double click the
file ACtoCDFPkg.exe. The files you need to install ACtoCDF will be
to the C:/ACtoCDF folder. If you change the location be sure you make
a note where you extract the files. Three files will be extracted.
Note: You may get a message indicating that the publisher
could not be verified. This is because I have not taken the necessary
steps to become a verified publisher. You can ignore that message
and run the extraction program.
Install the ACtoCDF application:
Next go to the folder where the files were extracted and double
click on the file setup.exe.
Follow the install instructions.
Typically you should install the program at the default location C:/Program
Files/ACtoCDF. The instructions for using ACtoCDF assume this
is the location in which you install the program.
Run ACtoCDF and read the help section:
After the program
is installed you need to run it (double click the icon
on your desktop or or double click the file ACtoCDF.exe). You will
be prompted to enter the serial number. If you purchased a license,
enter the serial number you received in the e-mail you received when
you purchased the license - or if you are testing ACtoCDF in the
demonstration mode, enter '0'. Enter the serial number, click OK,
(upper left corner of the program window) then click on "Contents".
READ THE COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS before you start to convert
your AOL Contacts. Then return and proceed to do each step of
the process exactly as detailed in the help section of the program.
Good Luck with your download and conversion.
