Act! 2009: Cannot create database

I cannot create new database on 1st install. The message I get is "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". I have tried starting & stopping then re-startingSQL services, does not help.


Appreciate quick response.


Thanks & regards,

Hello Hrtrifaley,

Welcome to the ACT! Online Community!


Can you provide some additional information:

- What is the operating system of the computer?

- Are there any other messages along with the Object Reference error?

- Are you able to open the ACT! Demo database?
