I've run Act! as a stand-alone-laptop for years - upgrading to newer versions along the way. (I've used the software since the mid 1980's.) Lately while tring to load the program (Ver. 10.0) I receive the following message:
"The database ______ could not be accessed. In order to access this database, check your network connection and verify that your database server is available. It may be necessary to disable any firewall software on your computer or the server."
I don't tie into (and never have) tied into a server but, thinking that ACT! might tie into Sage to check for updates or some other reason, I disabled my Sunbelt Vipre software to no avail. I even contacted Sunbelt to see if there might be a conflict. The told me, no, there wasn't. What's going on? And, please don't tell me that ver. 10.0 is no longer supported.

I'm not able to either create a new database or open the demo database but I have noticed something rather odd - When I go into My Computer and the "C" drive to look into the Program Files and see what's there I see the following files: Act, Act 7, Act 8, Act 9, & Act 10. If I click on any one of those Act Icons, as if I wanted to 'open' the programs in that fashion, I get a message from an outfit named Dot Net Bar Components (www.devcomponents.com) telling me that I'm on a 'trail basis' and asks me if I want to buy the program. I'm not sure what that's all about.
Also, while I do have compressed Act files (database & etc) they are backups and are not located within the program files, they're in a different location. None of the files within the actual programs are compressed.
