Act! 11 4Gb Database limit

Can this be overcome by using the full SQL product rather than SQL Express (which has the 4Gb limit). I understand you will have to specify instance name and other options when installing the full SQL.

 

Or is the limit in the software as well as the database itself

ACT! Premium ST uses SQL 2005 Standard (when installed on a server operating system) and doesn't have this limit.

We are using Act along with TAS Books which has an Act plug in. This does not work with Act Premium, only Act standard (don't ask me why) so we cannot use Act Premium.

The size limit is on the ADF file, not the whole database.  You can find the size of the ADF by going to Help > About ACT! > Database Information.
