The database isnt opened the first time ACT is opened

When I open up Act for the first time during the day Act says that it can not find the last opened database, however when you click "OK" to that message an open dialog box appears and the location is pointed to where the database is and you can see the database file in the open dialog box. If you double click the database file in the open dialog box it will open with out any problems.

Basically I need to open it two times to get it to open, the first time I loads Act in a day or if I reboot.

Ok - a few questions:

  • What version?
  • What version of windows?
  • What happens if you disable firewall?
  • Is the database on the same machine as Act!?
  • How many databases are installed?

ACT 10

XP PRO

The same thing happens when the firewall is disable or enabled on either machines.

Act is shared on a different machine.

There is only one database.

 

There are not any network connectivity issues (I believe) because as soon as you click OK to the error message it takes you to the correct database location in the open dialog box and you can open the database file from that open window.
