Creating New Database - Error Message

[ Edited ]

I just installed Pro 2012 onto a computer that is operating Windows 7 Professional.  The program (ACT) downloaded properly and I was able to run the demo database. The database is on a local computer not being shared from a server. I went to create a new database and after several minutes I received the following message. 


Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.


I x'ed out of the message and closed the program.  I attempted to log back in to Act and choose the database I just created, which was showing up, but when I clicked on it the program just sits for a long time and eventually either freezes up or I get the same message.


I have no idea what the problem is.  Any thoughts?
