Stupid me... I moved my database from a prior location because i was doing some housekeeping. I think the location is more logical now.
In order to move it, I unlocked it from the SQL Database and then dragged and dropped.
But, now it won't open. I get the error message that 'The database could not be accessed. Check your network connection......" This is not on a network.
So, I tried to restore the .zip copy. That didn't work. The error message I got was "Failed to open a connection".
I checked to see if the Act files were 'locked' by the SQL database (using a program called Unlocker) and they didn't seem to be.
How can I restore these data files? Or how can I associate them back with the SQL Database?
I recreated my old directory tree and moved the ADF file(s) back. Rebooted and it loaded. Then, I actually read in the Act Help files how to properly move a database.
I think I am OK now......
