Re: remote database upload error

First place you might look is to go to the Knowledgebase as the generic part of this message is that the SQL service is not running on the machine you are trying to restore on. Go to Start Run and type is services.msc and see if the SQL ACT 7 instance is actually running.


Which version of ACT might also help
