ACT7 SQL server start problems

[ Edited ]

When I try to open ACT Premium 2013 I get the following message "Sage ACT was unable to start the ACT7 SQL server instance and and open the local database"

 

When I try to manually start ACT7 SQL all I can find is Mcirosoft SQL server 2008 and 2008 R2. When I try to start 2008 R@ I get

"The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion". when I try to manually start SQL to no avail. I run ACT on a single computer Anyone got any ideas?

 

 Using windows Vista with Office 2010

Hi David,

 

Yes and none of that worked, For some reason it won't start no matter which way I try to start it.  Any suggestions other that a total uninstall and reinstall.
