Hello ACT Community,
I am attempting to install ACT 2009 on an XP Home SP3 Machine. During the install, while configuring components of the SQL Server Database Services, SQL gives me an error that the service failed to start (MSSQL$ACT7). I tried installing SQL by itself, only to get the same error that it could't start the service. I also used the ACT Uninstaller 13.0 and tried to reinstall after a reboot.
Can you please provide me suggestions on how to get SQL to cooperate with this machine?
