ACT 2010 Backup

Trying to set up back ups on ACT 2010. I am getting the following message after setting up the dates and time for back up.

Error occured while saving server config.file. Access to the path 'C:\ProgramData\ACT\ACT For Windows 12\SCHEDULER_FILE.xml' is denied.

This is fairly simple to sort out.

 

    1. Windows Vista/Windows 7
      • Click Organize, then Folder and Search Options, then select the View tab.
      • Under "Hidden files and folders", select the option to Show hidden files and folders.
      • Uncheck the box for Hide extensions for known file types
      • Click Apply. Click OK

Rightlick on the ACT! Folder, set permissions to Everyone Full Control. You can also delete that scheduler.xml file as well.

Rightclick and Run as Administrator the ACT! Scheduler. Now you should be able do everything again.

Err .. I meant "C:\ProgramData\ACT\" is where you need to set the permissions.
