Act 2010 hangs when it gets to deploying and attaching express demo...

Hello,

I  had to reformat a workstation and reinstall act and  now on a fresh install  ACT  hangs when i get to the "deploying and attaching the SQL express demo database"  .  Weird this wasnt an issue the first time around and I even tried installing  the sql client  first after I encountered the error and its still hanging.  Theres nothing different on this machine that the previous installation.  Can anyone shed light on this?

Hello Paul,
Was there a prior version of SQL on the machine or are there other apps using SQL besides ACT!. If there was a prior version, you may need to do a manual removal of SQL. If there are other apps using SQL, then stop the SQL instance of those apps before installing the ACT! instance. Also make sure you are logged into Windows as local administrator user and if using Windows Vista or Windows 7 you may also want to disable User Account Control (UAC).

How do I identify programs using SQL?
