Re: Database Restore Issue

I don't know if ACT 2011 is compatible with Windows 8, so you might try to install ACT 2011 on a fresh, clean Windows 8 installation first, to see if it's working.

As your error message includes something with "Prereq" i guess there's a problem with the ACT prerequisites.


So you might try two things:

  1. Uninstall any potential prerequisites prior to installing ACT to let the ACT setup install these by itself.
  2. Install any potential prerequisites manually prior to installing ACT.


Potential prerequisites are

  • Visual C++ Runtime x86, the version might by 2005, 2008 or 2010.
  • .Net Framewok 3.5 (this is a feature in Windws 8, you need to install it via the "Turn Windows Features on or off"-Dialog
  • Maybe some synch-Framework
