Thanks for the response. Unfortunately it did not work on my computer.
I have a laptop with Windows 10 and have installed the Demo version of ACT!Pro on it . I am residing in Germany and have installed the German version from Swiftpage, I think this is v17.
I have installed the old database on my laptop: the .ADF file, the .ALF file and a directory with database files. I have not installed the .pad file.
After executing step 3 of your description, I get the message "ACT will now verify the database. This my take several minutes."
After clicking OK the working indicator appears and never stops working. I have left my laptop on through the whole night and it was the same in the morning - working indicator was still showing "In work". The database is about 30 MB big.
So, what am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for your help.

This will be the issue. Your older database cannot be upgraded on SQL 2014.
I would recommend trying the upgrade on a machine with SQL 2005, or 2008 installed. Installing Act v17.0 will install SQL 2008.
After updating the database on the other machine, try moving it to your machine with SQL 2014,
although Act v17 has not been tested with SQL 2014. You may have to downgrade your SQL. Act v17 is compatible with SQL 2014.
