Microsoft Sql Server issue

I have finally installed ACT 2008 after a laborious process. Upon trying to create a new Database, i get the message that there is an error connecting to the Microsoft Sql Server. How can i get around this?

Make sure the SQL service is started.

  1. Go to Start and select Run, type in services.msc and click Ok.
  2. Look for SQL Server (ACT7) and make sure the service is started.

Also try disabling your antivirus software to test.
