Does Act need to be loaded on the server that the db reside? About 3 weeks ago after loading Quickbooks 2009 we could not access our Act DB anymore. Message looked to be a permissions on the network but was not the case. Since then we got a new server and moved the ACT folder over and still cannot open any of our contacts. Does ACT need to be installed on the server that hosts the information? I tried moving all the data local and get the same error

Please provide more info;
What Operating Systems are involved?
What version of ACT! ?
What version of SQL Server are you now using and what version were you using before you installed QB?
Exactly What error messages are you getting?
Have you tried runing ACTDIAG(rebuild options)?
Have you tried to reinstall ACT!?
Thanks - FSB

Thank You for the quick Replies
So it looks initially I will install ACT on the new server. Will I have to do anything special to get my existing DB to run as they are on our network drive or will they just work
Thank You again!

When I try and install Act on the new Windows 2003 SBS server it says we have to load disc 2 with SQL 2000 on it even though SQL 2005 is on the sever it won't load sql 2000 because of incapatibilty but doesn't see the sql 2005 How do I get past this?
Thank You in advance

I did disconnect them first and stopped the sql server service then moved them. Is there a way to reconnect them in the new computer?

I have the new version coming. When I load it on the server will my old db just open up? or should I work on getting the db to open on my local workstation.
