New to the forum and hoping to get some help.
I have Act 2012 premium (on a server) and 8 out of 10 times I get the following when I go and try to open up Act:
SQL Database Command Timed Out
Any advise would be much appreciated.

Travis, can you point me to these articles? I can't find them.
I am having the annoying "SQL Database Command Timed Out" error popup everytime I open up ACT. but then i ok it, and open database and its fine.
I decreased the time out, and the error just showed up faster - which makes it more convenient for me to just click ok and move on. But i still want to remove this issue.

Having the same issue..
oddly enough I have 1 system on the newtwork that can access the ACT server with no issues.
then I have 3 other that get the same Time out error.. however they have connected before so unsure what changed.

Just had the same situation. One computer got the error message and the other did not. The one with the error message was Windows 7 Home. The computer without an error message was Windows 7 Pro. Problem was solved by adding the SQL port to the exemptions in the windows firewall. Ther server it a Windows 7 Home computer as well.
