Older Updates how-to?

All my computers have Act! 2005 with version except the 1 problem computer


The problem: 1 computer has version 7.0.399 and I need it to be like the others.  I can't find the upgrade download for the wanted version. I get the error message: "ACT! requires at least service pack 3 of SQL Server."  I tried the knowledge base Answer ID 14517 which pertains to this exact problem however when I performed the part about the Act7Demo it did not ask to upgrade, it just opened the database. I tried manually downloading the update and it did not work... it just finished and nothing happened.


I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Act! and I got the same probelm. I tried manually downloading SQL and it did not work. 


Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Assuming upgrading to ACT! 2008 (10.0) isn't an option (it's fater and more reliable as well have having plenty of other improvements) -I'd recommend updating all systems to 7.04 as per this ACT! Knowledge Base article -
