Problems acces shared databse after move to Windows 2008 server

I have an installation of Act Premium for Workgroups  2005 that was running on a WIndows 2000 server.  The server is being replaced with a Windows 2008 32 bit server.

 

I installed Act Premium for Workgroups  2005 on the new server and then backed up the 4 databases and restored them to the enw server.  I can open all the databses  by running Act on the new server and opening them locally.

 

I made sure that network permissions and firewall issues were all fine.  I opened them locally and checked that they were set to share..  I use a konledg base article and detached the databae adn reattached it with the same error.

 

When I try to access these databases from a Winxp PC I get the error

 

"The database could not be accessed. In order to access this database, check your network connection and verify that your database server is available. It may be necessary to disable any firewall software..."

 

I am not sure if this is related but I have a service SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) that I believe is the Act7 instance which won't start.  I checked by looking at the registry value .  The error is 17113 and the event id is 7024.  Since Act works fine on the server is this the issue?

 

 

I would appreciate any help!

ACT 2005 won't work on on Windows 2008 server. The version of SQL it comes with is not compatable with the operating system.  You only hope here is to upgrade to ACT 2010
