Greetings-There seems to be issues with MS updates to SQL Server 2005. I have had a similar problem with a recent previous version of ACT..Current issue is SQL Server 2005 Service pak 3 KB970892. I was not able to find any reference in the FAQ area, nor any downloads that address this recent problem. I am locked out of the database. I have followed the help screen suggestions about disabling anit virus and firewall....Did not work. I purchased a new copy of ACT2010. I am trusting that this will handle the problem Oh error message is #1073741724... I am currently HARD DOWN (a phrase from my days with DEC). I hope there is some help for this issue or that ACT2010 is not subject to the problem... CAN ANYONE HEAR ME?
