After reloading Act 10 files says, "this database is not shared."

After reloading Act 10 files says, "this database is not shared."

I had a computer crash.  I had saved everything, and when I reloaded Act 2008 v10, it would open two databases that I do not need, but the main database that I use says, "This database is not shared.To access... it must be shared.  Please contact the database administrator."

 

I am the database administrator  There is nobody else but me.  How do I get it to open?

Try rebuilding the PAD file.  Follow the steps in the knowledgebase article below.

 

The .PAD file is damaged

This did not work because when I went to actdiag, the file did not show up.  It does show up when I open ACT and select open database, but the database says it is not shared.

If it's the same problem I had it's easy to fix.

 

Login in as an adminsitrator, go to Tools, Database Maintenance and Share Database

I should be more specific. I can't open the database so I can't use act to change the Database settings.
