Database wont open in act 2000!

[ Edited ]

the database you are trying to open is not an ACT! database.  to use this database in ACT!, you need to import the data by following the onscreen insruction in the Import Wizard.  Do you want to continue?



i am using the exact same version of act and it opens fine for me and the other 18 users who access it.  but for one particular user, i get this message above.  any ideas?


i have uninstalled and reinstalled it but still it happens


also to note, i have logged in as the admin on the same computer and opened the database with no problem at all

The user account is corrupted, most likely corrupted data associated with that user. Typically I would expect it to be a corrupted activity.

You'll also get this message if the user doesn't have full access to the database folder
