Re: ACT! Pro - Cannot create local database; SQL is not installed locally.

Is there a way to run the installation again and just install the SQL server instance?

Re: ACT! Pro - Cannot create local database; SQL is not installed locally.

I suggest you contact ACT! specialist  to help you create the instance manually.

 

Consider the following before starting the instance creation:

 

1. Disable User Account Control (UAC) there are videos on youtube that explain how do this. - You may need to reboot after this

2. You must be a User local Administrator  (not a domain administrator user)

3. Temporarily disable your Antivirus and Firewall - While installing the instance manually

I ended up contacting ACT! support and they gave me the same link to manually install the SQL instance

 

Thanks for all the help.
