ACT 2010 Sharing Problems

We are trying to setup Sharing for our Database in Windows 7. I have performed all the necessary firewall changes etc, but each time I click on "Share Database" The warning that data will be shared comes up but the "Tick" next to Share Databse never appears and none of the other machines can connect to the database.


Anyone got any ideas?

Hello Gregbooth,

Since you are running this on a Windows 7 operating system, try running Act! as administrator and the click on the Share Database option.  To do this:

- close Act!

- right click on Act! icon

- select 'Run As Administrator'

- attempt to 'Share Database'
