Which SQL Server Express 2008 version do i get with ACT!?

i installed ACT! 2012 and i can see on the Start-->"all programs" , two types of DB:

 

1. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 - which has 4 GB size limitation

2. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 - which has 10 GB size limitation

 

The first one has 4 GB size limitation and

the second one (R2) has 10 GB size limitation.

 

this is very critical cause i need to know the size of the ACT database ,

which one is it ? 

what is the limitation to the ACT! database ?

i have spoken with the customer service.

They said that although ACT! comes with SQL Server EXpress 2008 R2 (that is limited to 10G) ,

ACT! is still limited to 4G!.

 

huge dissapointment for me.... Smiley Sad

I'm sorry you were given incorrect information. ACT 14.0 and forward does permit databases greater than 4G when using SQL Express (SQL Server 2008 R2). I changed the limitation myself early in the 14.0 development cycle.

To ensure I had not overlooked a limitation somewhere, I created a new database of 9 G, backed it up, and restored it using ACT. I had no issues.
