I am trying to upgrade a really old version of Act (2000) that is used internally in our company. I am having a problem trying to convert the old dbase data. I keep recieveing the following error message when trying to do the upgrade: "Conversion has been halted with the following message: The process cannot access the file 'pre7actdb.adb' because it is being used by another process".
I have read a few other posts with people having the same problem and have tried all of the suggestions but nothing worked. What I don't understand is where this pre7actdb.adb file even exists? What is it and what does it do? Someone in another post mentioned it has to do with file attachments in the database so I looked at some of the records in the old database and a lot of file attachements are paths to network drive's that don't exist and are long gone. Wondering if that is the problem?
I have tried the 'actdiag' diagnostics tool and nothing fixes the error I am getting. Scanned the database and did the database repair and everything checks out in green. Reindexed the database as well.
Any ideas or help would greatly be appreciated!

I can assess your Access databases for what it will take to convert them; can perform the conversion for you; and will be pleased to work with you if you want to include improvements as part of the process.
