Installing ACT Reader v16

Hello community,

 

we operate with "Act! Pro Version 16.0.291.0 German (Germany) " and want to use the ACT Reader feature to implement a Linked Server to another SQL-Server.

Unfortunately I have not been able to implement the ACT Reader, because the ACTReader.exe is not installed on my System.

 

Now I have the following questions:

1. How do I obtain the necessary / correct Software for my system to connect to the database via ACTReader?

2. How do I install that software correctly?

3. Which risks to my running system come with an installation?

 

Thank you very much for your help and have a nice day

Re: Installing ACT Reader v16

As far as I am aware this feature is only able to be implemented on the Premium version of ACT

 

Here is a link about ACT reader and ODBC
