ACT! v17 Windows10 crashes when trying to attach document, document link or anything in document

Re: ACT! v17 Windows10 crashes when trying to attach document, document link or anything in document

In Swiftpage's Defense, I don't feel oversold at $200 per user and they sold me what I requested. Which was, basically what I had so far, not more, not less. That is what I got. And a bit more. Don't plan to go over 10 users. We are at 13000 contacts and just under 300MB (yes MB) . Works well on our server with SQL2012. And once I put in a Linux Server (since MS stopped small biz server) I hope I can run SQL on a virtual machine on that Linux server. ACT! is still a great small biz solution.
I just hope Swiftpage gets the hang of what ACT! had been for a long time and that the cloud isn't for everyone and has limitations when it comes to customization and addons.

Thank You Swiftpage! You got blindsided by some Windows10 thing. But you provided a working hotfix within a week. Not too bad. 

Tunning several days now after installing hotfix. No more known problems.

Metalco,

 

  I've seen people running VM's on a linux server to house the SQL database without issue.  We can't give you much help in the Linux side, but on the Windows side we can assist if you have a support contract.

 

Good luck, and feel free to post more questions or issues here!

Hi, Great. Thank You for the info. That is a really important thing I needed to know. Which is that VM's house SQL on Linux is no issue. In know I am on my own once I make the dive into Linux. Got a little live left on our Windows Server 2012. But it's good to know my options once Windows pulls the plug on the small businesses. Thanks again for the info. Once I get there I am sure I find (and share) info on the community forum.
