ACT Pro V18 wont install on Win 10 laptop

I just bought a new laptop with Win 10 Pro.  Lots of memory and hard drive space and an i7 cpu.  Plenty of power.  Also bought brand new copy of ACT Pro v18.  Act will NOT install on the laptop.  I get SQL errors during the installation process.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

What is the exact SQL error?  That will help tell you what to try.  Just installed ACT v18 on 12 Windows 10 machines with no problem.  It might have to do with access privileges to the computer.  You have to be a Local Administrator.

For reference if necessary: Here's the Knowledgebase article on how to manually create the SQL server instance for Act, if the installer is having problems: http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/38099
