Install issues with Act! 2010 and Server 2008 R2

Hello experts,

 

I have been trying for a few days to install Act! 2010 on a new VM of Server 2008 R2 Standard.  I get to the point where SQL Express is trying to install and then it errors out with ACT! has encountered an error and needs to close. Followed by SQL did not install successfully. Please review..... Clicking OK causes the install to close.

 

I should note that SQL 2012 is already installed on this server and working fine.

 

Thanks for any assistance you can give,

 

Gwen

I have installed SQL Express 2005 on the server manually and am still getting this error when I try to install Act 2010.

 

Anyone?

Hello Gwen,

I also have recent, similar post re sql server for ACT!2013 pro . Waiting for answer/help.

  It is not my area of expertise. but I have been trying to deal witth a prob re MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Service pak1.

Have you looked in the ACT! knowledge base for your answer yet?

 It may provide necessary system requirements for your desired emvironment setup.

 Perhaps you may need version : MS SQL Server 2008 R2  (Express or Standard) Service pak1 ?

  I'm just guessing so check to insure proper system requirements for that version of ACT!

   I think one of my ACT!2010 Vista pc's is using MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Service pak1? Cheers - FSB
