Create Remote Database receives "Failed" Error

I just created a new database and when I try to create a remote database, I receive the error "Failed to create remote databse "Laptop". Stream does not support writing. Please contact the administrator for more help. would you like to create another remote database? Yes or No. when I click Yes, I get the same error. I can create a remote database from the "demo" database. Any suggestions?

Did you select the same folder to try creating the remote database from the demo?
What operating system?

Yes, I selected the same folder to try creating the remote database from the demo and it has the same message "failed..." Operating system? Windows XP Version 2002 Service Pack 2 We've uninstalled ACT! at least twice and when uninstalling, tech support had to go in and manually uninstall items. The last issue before the "failed" remote database, was an SQL Server problem and .NET framework error. Tech support uninstalled and I reinstalled ACT!.

Re: Create Remote Database receives "Failed" Error

Have you got the SQL or .Net error again?
What exact version of ACT! from Help About?
Did support have any other idea on that error?
