Just delete it.  It's in %appdata%\act

Re: How do I get past the access to the path is denied error?? dependentDlls.xml is denied,

ACT! will automatically recreate the dependentdll.xml file every time it starts up so deleting it isn't a problem.  I suspect that you still have an issue with write access to that folder.  To troubleshoot I would use actdiag to remove your preferences and try to open the ACT! Demo database and see if you have the same issue.  That will tell you if you're having an issue with your database or ACT!.  I've also seen that error occur when a 3rd party addon wasn't working properly so if you have one you could try removing it.

[ Edited ]

not sure what happened but I am now able to launch ACT however I ran into some new issues....

 

1.  doing a lookup by first or last name I get the following error message

 

System Unauthorized Access tot he path

long string of text

 

2.  if I try to save a copy of the database I get

 

the specified location for your copy database is invalid.  a database must be copied on a drive on your machine

 

I'm a long time act user going back more than 10 years.  I just started having all these weird issues in the past year.  it;s really aggecting my business.

 

please help!!!

Where is your database located (directory, machine,etc)? This sounds like a permission issue where you are getting blocked in some way.

Re: How do I get past the access to the path is denied error?? dependentDlls.xml is denied,

I have a dual boot scenario.  so I am currently logged into my F Drive where the ACT database is located.  I had deleted the dependent Dlls in order to get around the access issue.  I also went into actdiag per stan's message above.

 

I can now launch ACT successfully but I get the new error message whenever I try to do a lookup.

 

I am extremely frustrated with ACT and ready to scrap.  Please help!!

Post the entire error message you get so we can see what the error is.
