Opportunity date error after applying version (SP2 Update)

Running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1


ACT Pro v17 was working fine for several months.   I updated to SP2, and now receive an error when switching to opportunity detail view from any other screen (contacts or task list or calendar).  The Estimated Close Date and Open Date are blank, the red exclaimation mark indicates these dates cannot be blank.


This error occurs with any opportunity layout in my working database, and also occurs in the ACT2015Demo database.  

When the error is present and demands that a date be entered, it resolves itself if I change the Layout.  I can then select different oppotunities and move around with no issues, UNTIL I change to a contact view, or calendar, or task list..... and try to go back to view opportunities. 


I've tried disabling any Add-ons I use. This does not correct the problem. 


I'm stumped.  Any help is appreciated.

Thank you for submitting your post. The issue you are having may be resolved by checking out our Knowledgebase at


Below is a link to a Knowledgebase Article that can assist you with this issue:

I tried to replicate this issue and received the same error if there was no dates entered for both Open Date and Estimated Close Date. Enter both dates and click the save to ensure data capture.

Hope this helps,
