Upon trying to install Act Pro 2012 on a workstation, I revieve an error stating that the SQL Server is running and the installation cannot continue.
I was told to go into the Services.msc and locate SQL Server(ACT7) and restart it however, there is no instance running.
What can I do?

Which Windows operating system are you installing ACT onto? And do you have full System Administration privileges on this computer?
If you go into your programs under control panel (add remove programs if running Windows XP) is Microsoft SQL Server 2008R2 listed? There will be a number of these ending in Native Client, VSS Writer, Browser etc.
If there are some in your list, it may not have installed properly, due to insufficient privileges.
