Problems Problems SQL and creating database

HELP! I installed Act 2011 Pro on windows 7 32bit.


When I try and open the demo database I get an error " the database cannot be opened  because it has been upgraded to a newer version of sql server.Please contact your administrator for assistance"


When I try and setup a new database I get an error as follows "The database Test cannot be opened because it is version 661.This server supports version 612 and earlier...


I tried calling support who told me to uninstall and help. Thanks

Re: Problems Problems SQL and creating database

There are many offered solutions in the knowledge base but generally I have found the problem is that the SQL did not install correctly.


You could try uninstall and before you reinstall make sure to remove .net 4 from the computer has solved it for me on a number of ocassions
