Can not get install to work with Pre-existing 2005 box

I have run through the How to Manually Create the Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005 (Standard Edition) ACT7 Instance document more times than I care to mention.  My ACT7 instance is starting and everything seems ok on the DB side.

 

When I run the install of ACT! Premium 11 EX Web, it does not seem to find the instance as I never get prompted for the SA password. 

 

We are running a 64-Bit Server, Windows Server 2003, SQL SERVER 2005 Enterprise Edition, ACT! Premium 11 EX Web.  I am trying to put the ACT install on the same box.

 

Any thoughts, cause I have about had it.

Yes, I have read that page about 100 times.  It's the page that the article I mentioned I read links from.

 

On the install, it basically comes to the screen to choose the location for the ACT files and the ACT Sql Express DB,  then it tries to install SQL express versus finding my SQL Server Enterprise install.

 

Can someone confirm that what I have will work together?

I've never tried it with SQL enterprise, but I have been told that it should work the same as with SQL Standard providing the instance is named "ACT7"
