Cant create a new DB - Attempted to Read or write protected memory ...

I am trying to creat a new Act DB and I get the above error. This happens after entering the db name, user id / pw etc and then around 15 sec will go by and then I get this error.

Re: Cant create a new DB - Attempted to Read or write protected memory ...

Are you using the default database directory within your profile, or have you selected a custom location for the database?

 

I remember encountering this error when I created a directory called "C:\ACTDATA", and then tried to restore a database to it. I had to play around with the folder permissions quite a bit before it finally allowed me to save a database in this location.
