I just got done formating my machine...reinstalled Window 7 64bit and upgraded to Office 2010 and then installed ACT 2011.
I continue to have problems with ACT! I renstalled ACT 2011 and installed SP1 and the latest hot fix....and I STILL CANT EVEN CONNECT TO MY ACT DATABASE!. This software is nothing but probems...but until I find a replacement I NEED to acces my databse. I am getting this message...
" The database blahblah cound not be accessed. In order to access this database, check your network connectiona and verify that your databse server is available. It may be neccessary to disable any firewall software on your computer on the server."
First of all...It a stand alone machine...the databse IS installed on the machine the software is installed on. Secondy I tried turning off the firewall to no avail....So Sage experts...now what!?

This usually just means MS-SQL hasn't started. Try the various options listed on this ACT! Knowledge Base article -
