Cannot share database - the swiftpage version on win7

 

"There was a problem shareing(sic)/unsharing your ACT! database. The path is not of a legal form"

 

running as admin user (win+act+rightclieck run-as admin)

 

i moved the database and another database - both to different folder on same drive. one is fine the other not fine.

 

i can access the database

 

i haev tried to detach in actdiag but that doesn't work

What version/build of Act! from Help | About?
If v16 - make sure you have Hotfix 2
See: http://kb.swiftpage.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/36573

How did you move the databases?
Is the folder under "Users"?

Re: Cannot share database - the swiftpage version on win7

hi Mike

 

thank you for the response

 

1. latest version , all win and .net updates

2. moved using the menu options file/move database/

3. no. d:\act databases\

 

4. have tried another act admin user and another windows admin users - no difference.

 

as i said it worked for one database but not the other. they have both been physically moved and both can be accessed locally.

 

the first time i treid the move of the one that does not now share i did it iwhtout right clicking and running as admin. i had to restart the move process and compelte it by running as admin. i suspect the fault lies there somewhere.
