I'm trying to create a remote database, but to try gives me the error message Attachment (Picture).
Unable to cast object of type 'System.Security.Principal.GenericPrincipal' to type 'System.Principal.WindowsPrincipal'.

Hi Juan Carlos,
We have been able to reproduce this and barring any other complications, we plan for this to be fixed in Sage ACT! 2013 Service Pack 1, currently scheduled for January release.
It is something we found is an issue on certain OSes trying to determine whether the user has the right permissions to create a remote. One thing you could try if you need a remote immediately is to install Premium on another machine (say, a Windows 7 machine) and point it to the DB server via .pad file and try to create the remote from there.
Hope this helps.
