Creating Remote Database

I just loaded premium 2011 on win 7 home premium.  I can not get "Create Remote Database" to be highlighted?  I have it on another computer and it is but I need it on this one as it will be my main database to sync with.  Please help.

- Running ACT! 'As Admin', to do this: close ACT! > right click on ACT! icon > select 'Run As Administrator'.

- Have you created a sync set?  There must be an existing sync set before the option will be enabled.


If those do not work, test the option in a different database (ex: open the ACT! Demo or create a new database).  Can the option be enabled in the different database?

Hello National Joe,

It may also be that you have not enabled sync. Please see my response to your other post regarding sync:


Also, try disabling User Account Control (UAC) in Windows. Instructions are in KB Article 25665.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
