Can't install Act2006 V8

Old system died and I'm installing Act 2006 on a new computer.  I have XP professional and all SP's installed.  When I install I get an error message  " an ACT 7 instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 has occurred, uninstall instance and reinstall program".  I've looked at a lot of the SQL questions but they seem to hit around my problem but don't address directly.  How can I install and begin using my ACT 2006?


Thanks in advance,

Take a look at the following kb article.


How to Use the ACT! Uninstaller.exe file


Running the ACT! uninstaller should remove the remaining traces of the ACT7 SQL instance.
