I have followed all of the instructions for installing act on SQL08r2 with standard sql installation. I have created and started the act7 SQL instance. I have also installed act "custom" without the SQL express (since we already have sql standard). I am now lost. The program starts. never asks me for act7 sql instance database password. It does not show anything other than "new database" or connect to "shared" database.
-Is act supposed to find the act7 instance durring installation??
-Do i need to first connect the act 7 instance into sql??
Please help!!! We purchased this over a month ago and the software is basically a paperweight.

When you created the Act7 instance you should have been prompted to create a password as per step 14 in this article:
When act prompts for the password you need to enter the password you created. this will connect Act to SQL.
If Act is installed and the ACT7 instance has been created you could try these steps:

Ok so I Act installed. The Act7 instanace is installed and service is running. I just performed the command line steps.
This is what i see when i start act. I then have to create a new database?? Is this correct? Am i supposed to see an instance of act in the SQL server manager???

Thank you guys SO MUCH!!!! I had it installed correctly but Act does a horrible job at confirming or showing me that it was connected. The diagnostic utility i had no idea about showed me that it was correct. Thanks again!
