Though this works fine at my end,following error message i receive at client side "Access to path the "C:\Documents and Settings\<user_name>\Application Data\ACT\ACT For Windows \Preferences" is denied" .We have taken client access and given everyone access , but still the same error message.

 

Any help is appreaciated.

Hi,

 

1.  Close ACT!.
2.  Go to Start and select Run
3.  Type %appdata% and click Ok.
4.  Browse down to ACT\ACT for Windows 9
5. you will see the preference.XML file
6. right click on that goto properties 
7. goto the security tab
8. click on ADD .type everyone

 

give everyone Full control

 

 

and then try it

it will work fine Smiley Wink
