Convertion ACT!16 DB to ACT!17



we like to convert a act16 premium database (v16.0.291.0) into a act17 premium database (v17.1.69.0HF3).


We never get further then the "checking database" window with the blue balls blinking...that's it.


WIN7 PC with SP1


Do you have any idea how to get around it?

Re: Convertion ACT!16 DB to ACT!17

Several suggestions.

1. Download fresh version of ACT 17.1 and install on a different computer.
2. Run Scan and Repair on the old database before you try to convert.
3. Be careful about the ACT 17x install file you use, remember there are two different versions of SQL in ACT V17 and don't get confused about the SQL version that is on the conversion computer and SQL on the final destination computer. That can make your kind of nuts.
It is all in the details..
4. Call support?
5.Good luck~
