SQL Server Agent (ACT7) wont start!!!

Not sure what has changed but Im running this on Server 2008r2 and the main SQL Server is working and I can open ACT on the main server but cant access it remotely from other PC's


the only thing I can see is that SQL server agent (acts) wont start.


When I try to start it I get...The SQL Agent (ACT7) service on local computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically i fthey are not in use by other service programs.


I have recreated the PAD file and tried everything except do a complete reinstall.  I would but have several agents in the field and it would mess them up.


I have turned off the Firewall and dissabled antivirus just in case that was blocking.


Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Mike,


SQL Server Agent (ACT7) is not needed to open and use Act!.  Are you getting an error message when you try to open Act! remotely?


Thank You,
