Gday folks. I have a number of laptops running Act 7.04 Premium for Workgroups and I have been hosting the main database on my machine. Long to short, I had a virus last week and had to wipe the system and managed to make a backup of the Main database before reformatting. SOmething has gone wrong and the backup is refusing to restore. One of my team has an up to date Remote copy with all the data in, but I cannot figure out how to get this to resync to recreate the main database from scratch on my machine. As all of the data is there I cannot see why I cannot sync it up to an empty database and carry on as before. I have tried a number of things with no joy. Any ideas, I'm ripping my hair out here!
I still have it though it comes up with an error message during the restore process. I also have a backup copy taken around November time. This restores fine, though it is not aware of some of the remote databases which were created since then and they cant see it on the network.
Error message comes up after the Restore As button is pressed. System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object at C1.C1ZipFile.Open(String filename) at Act.UI.DatabaseMaintenanceDialogs.ValidatePassword()
I'm having a similar problem. My server crashed and I lost the publisher db (ACT 2007). I have a remote copy of the database which I was able to backup and "restore as" onto my server. It opens and appears to work OK. However, when I try to create a remote db from this copy I get the following error:
"Failed to create remote database XXXX. The system cannot find the file specified Please contact the adminstrator"....
I went into Help, About ACT, Database Information (on the top of the screen) and saw that the database created is not listed under sync role as "Publisher". The line is blank. Going into ACTDIAG shows online, unlocked, db version 09.01.0152.0000
