Corrupted SQL Server with Act Pro 2013

About 10 days ago my Act Pro 2013 on a Windws 7 Home Premium (64 bit) machine using a local, single user database quit working.


The Act instance of SQl Server wasn't running and couldn't be started because the log fille was corrupted. I don't remember the exact details.  The machine was running SQL Server 2008 R2 and I wasn't able to repair it.


I was able to successfully install SQL Server Express 2012 and I tried to create an ACT7 instance, but Act still doesn't connect with SQL Server.


My Act Pro 2013 was a download upgrade from Act Pro 2011, so I don't have installation disks, but do have the download file on my computer.  Can I reinstall the progaram and reestablish the connection?  If not, what is the fix?


Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Corrupted SQL Server with Act Pro 2013

Sounds like your SQL install is damaged.  If you are not using MS SQL for anything other than ACT!, I would remove all instances of SQL and reinstall SQL using the ACT! installer.  If the SQL component will not install using the normal ACT! installer, a manual install of SQL will be necessary.


See the following ACT! Knowledgebase article on this:
