my laptop crashed and I could no longer start SQL ACT7. Following knowledge base article I uninstalled and reinstalled SQL server 2008. I now get the message above.
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 - Express Edition
Sage ACT! Pro 2011 VERsion 126.96.36.199, Hot fix 6
ACTdiag shows no databases
Where to next?

Yes, after you reinstall sql no databases will show on your database list. You'll need to attach the databases again. Easiest way to do that is to go to the tools menu, click Attach Act! Database, Normal Attach.
Browse to each of your .ADF files for your database, one at a time, and attach them.
Afterwards, open Act! and (if needed) open the .PAD files like normal.
