[ Edited ]

I recently was attacjked by virus.  Can only run that machin Dell desktop w/ windows xp Pro serv pack 2 Act 2007 9.0 in safe mode.  Using detto intellemover able to move files to a replacement machine.

The new machine is a dell desktop Windows XP PRO serv pack 3 just updated.  I installed act 2007 9.0 many times and it will not open at all.  I did move all ACT folders from the old machine to the new and placed in the program files act folder and my documents, where they had been on old machine.

Can anyone help as I need the data....

Re: CANNOT OPEN aCT- FAILED TO OPEN A CONNECTION TO THE DATABASE MESSAGE

I have the same problem not being able to open ACT v9.  I was trying to upgrade to the latest v9 via the web download and it crashed.  Since then I have not been able to load/run v9 successfully on that machine.  Does it have anything to do with virus programs?  I disabled my Kaspersky when loading ACT.

 

Thanks.
