Sage ACT 2012 Pro Open database

I just did a clean install of Windows 7 from Vista.  Loaded ACT 2012 Pro and restored all files.   Trying to open the ACT .PAD file returns "The SQL Database instance is unavailble."  Trying to open the ACT .ADF file returns "You don't have permission to open this file".  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!   THANKS!!!!

You need to turn off the UAC or right click on the ACT! icon and choose run as administrator.
