database won't open after Windows 10 update

 I get the following 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. It may be necessary to disable any firewall software on your computer.

Re: database won't open after Windows 10 update

Hi Sheri,

 

This is an issue that I have seen quite often during Windows updates. and is due to our Act7 Instance attempting to start when Windows is still in the process of updating the systems and causes it to be partially started or stopped. I have provided this article as it guides on how to restart the service.
