Here’s what to do::
1. Close Act! and download the zip file that contains the two plugin DLLs you will copy. Get the files from Zip City’s updated dropbox folder:: www.dropbox.com/Zip-City_zip-code-locator.zip
2. Extract the files and move them to your Act! Plugins folder. Your Plugins folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\ACT\Act for Windows\Plugins by default. The two files are named ziplocatord.dll and FreelI.ZipLocator2.dll
3. If you are running Windows 8.1 then there are a couple more things to do. On each file right-click and select Properties. At the bottom of the Security tab click on the Unblock button, then Apply, then OK.
4. Open Act! and look for the Contacts Zip Locator button. If it’s there, then you are done. If it’s not there then you have one more step; deleting the DependentDlls.xml file (don’t worry, it’ll be recreated). To do this go to C:\Users\<your user name here>\AppData\Roaming\ACT\ACT Data and find, then delete, the DependentDlls.xml file.
This has been tested in versions from 2011 to v18.1. Zip City has tested the app as described. If you are running Act! v19 there is a new version of Zip Code Radius Search just for v19.
