My PC crashed last month. Tried to reinstall the software and I get several error messages.
1- Database cannit be accessed, check network connection --- connection is fine
2- MS SQL Server 2005 is installed. Serial number prevents access. Ininstall Sql Server 2005 and use disc 1 to reinstall. ---I have a later version of SQL Svr 05.. WIll ACT 07 work with newer versions?

Yes, ACT! 2007 should work fine with the latest version of SQL 2005, which is SP3. Just make sure you have the latest build of ACT! 2007 installed, which is 188.8.131.52.
As for the error you are receiving, this may be a damaged SQL installation or an issue with the database .PAD file. Please see KB Article 19640 for a list of possible causes and solutions for this error.
Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
