ACT 2013 & Windows 8 MYSQL

I have Windows 8 and Act 2013.

MY SQL server will not stay running.

 

Trying to restore a database that was backed up from a windows 7 system.

Using "Restore Database As" however it keeps failing becase the MY SQL Server

 

I have been in the SQL Server Properties and started the ACT 7 server numerous times. As Local System, Service and network, but none of the stay running and none of them make the Database restore.

 

ARRGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The problem is definitely the ACT sql issue,  Either it's not installed perperly, or something else on the system is causing it to stop or not keep running. Hard to troubleshoot without seeing it at this point.

 

is other SQl on the box?  are they running properly?
