ACT 12 database problem

I lose pad file when closing. Can't open adf file because it requires administrator although I am administrator and sole user. Win 7, 64 bit. I can restore from backup, but when I close I lose pad file. Of course I lose a little interim data each time I do this.

What's happening??

Re: ACT 12 database problem

Try running the ACT! program using the 'Run As Administrator' option.  To do this: close ACT! > right click on ACT! icon > select 'Run As Administrator'.  Do this both attempting to open with the ADF and when using a PAD file.

 

If this resolves the issue, right click on the ACT! icon > select Properties > Compatibility tab > enable 'always run as administrator' option.

Re: ACT 12 database problem

Even after I close ACT and attempt tp reopen--same message. Still can restore, but no pad, and I can't backup--can't find path, but path is unchanged.
