Re: Windows 8.1

What version of Act!
What OS is the server or is the data\base on the same machine?

Re: Windows 8.1

Me too, I've got the same issue.  Upgraded to Windows 8.1 and can no longer access my database. I get the message: "The Database __ could not be accessed. In order to access this database, check your network connection and verify that your database server is available."

Act! Pro Version, Hot Fix 4

Running ACT on resident machine, not a server.


Side note: I found a post that suggested renaming the .PAD file to "-old" and trying to open from the .ADF file, however doing so only prompts the error that the .ALF file is not found or isn't valid. No luck there.
