Cannot access some databases, but can access others.

Cannot access some databases, but can access others.

I had to reload all my software. (No fun.) I reloaded Act10, but now I cannot access some databases.  I have a couple minor ones that work fine, but I get "This database is not shared.  To access layouts, templates, and attachments associated with the database, it must be shared.  Please contact the database administrator for more information.

 The problem is, I am the only person.  I do not share with anyone, and I can access other databases.  What can I do?

I have read the possible fixes for this error:

This database is not shared.  To access layouts, templates, and attachments associated with the database, it must be shared.  Please contact the database administrator for more information.

 

and nothing works.  I am the administrator and can't access my databases!!!

Ignoring the fact that the database is not shared from your perspective (Act! is seeing the world differently than you), aside from reading the technote suggested, did you actually work through the solutions?

 

sometimes you cannot take a message from a computer in too literal a fashion...
