Sage act 2012 premium with windows 8


I have sage ACT 2012 premium set up with mulitple users and on the windows 8 machines the database over the network is very slow to open it and when searching. I treid backing up and restoring the data base on a windows 8 machine locally and it worked fine. Its just over the network im having real issues and the network is using cat6 cables so the data transfer shouldnt be a issue at all.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great,

Remember that before any change is prudent to back up your important files and e-mail


I'm no expert but Maybe you want to try disabling the UAC in Windows 8.


You may need to restart your computer after this change


1. Go to the Search Charm and type “Change User Account Settings”

2. In the console, change the settings as per your requirement. If you want to disable it, you can keep it at “Never notify”

3. Hit OK
