Upgraded to latest Win10 Version and can't access ACT! Database...hope this helps

Act! Tech Support helped me again to regain access to the ACT! database.  I had written the steps when this happens bu backed it up on ACT Database...now the steps backed up on the laptop

 

Can't access database after WIN10 upgrade:

Step 1: on Windows search box, type Services.MCS

Step 2: Scroll down to SQL Server (ACT7)

Step 3: Right Click on SQL Server (ACT7)

Step 4: Click on Stop (DO NOT CLICK ON RESTART, this may cause database issues)

Step 5: Then Click on Start

Step 6: Close Services

Step 7: Open ActDiag,make sure the database is ONLINE

Step 8: if it works and the databases opens properly, smile, have a sip of coffee and then get back to work

OR

Step 8: If it doesn't work, call tech support at 866-873-2006

 

(readers, please correct me if I'm wrong with the notes above and I'll correct)
