Error creating objects, DB creating fails



I am working with ACT! on multiple computers. The main database is on a server and everyone is using that remotely. However on 1 machine I have the following problem. Trying to create remote database gives me the error "Cannot create objects" (s. image).  Not a very helpful message to be honest Smiley Happy. I tried to google and found out some other people have experienced that, but I have no idea how to fix it. I started ActDiag, but cannot find any problems. The user account is marked as an Administrator for the database, so the lack of privileges should not be the issue. What approaches can you suggest around the problem?


Thank you for your time,

Re: Error creating objects, DB creating fails

How do you mean "on one machine" you have a problem?


Remote databases can only be created from the host/main/publisher database...?


What version of ACT!?
