I had to re-format my XP computer, I saved the ADF files.
Re-installed ACT - no problems. Set up a test company.
Tried to open an existing database via File/Open Database
Pointed to the ADF files (after changing the file type to "ACT! database"), clicked on Open, then received a message - "ACT! will now verify the database" , clicked on the OK button and then next message was:
"Database "xxxxx" already exists"
Click on OK & the Working screen comes up & just continues & continues, etc.
I tried importing data into test company & again I get the "Database "xxxxx" already exists" message.
Note- the only PAD files are the demo & test files

This ACTDIAG its not for your version of ACT, But I seen it worked for few computers
If its not works for you search low version of ACTDIAG, v15 is the latest one
Take a copy of your ACTDIAG and replace with new
If you replace with your ACTDIAG it will show you in DB list in ACTDIAG whether you have already a db with this name.
Remove it and then open with ADF through act program.
