Newbie needs some help! ACT! 2008 SQL upgrade password and user

Hi, we are upgrading our SQL database to SQL 2005 Enterprise. During the upgrade I select the ACT! instance and if I choose Windows Authentication Mode, it moans saying it needs admin priveledges to upgrade.

 

All other installed instances have upgraded fine using WAM.

 

So I assume during the install of ACT! 2008 a username and password was created. What is it? Or, how do I find it?

 

I've literally just installed ACT! 2008 and wish to upgrade the SQL database as the next step.

 

Thanks

You need to have SQL installed first... then create the instance for ACT! as per this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/5jh5wx
