How do I correct the Act Address Book configuration in Outlook 2007
Posted on 2008-02-01
I am having a problem with my Act! 2008 and Outlook 2007 not wanting to cooperate. When I open Outlook, I receive the error message - "The ACT! Address Book service is not properly configured, or the configured database [my database name] is locked. Do you want to configure it now?
This seemed to begin occurring about a month ago after I performed a repair/reinstall of Act!, due to some odd behavior with Act's performance. Now Act! runs pretty clean and fast, but the relationship with Outlook is 'broken'.
I have tried the suggested fixes that I have read in earlier discussions - disabling Windows firewall, McAfee firewall, UAC... no luck. I have unattached/reattached the Act address book in Outlook... no luck.
I would appreciate any additional ideas that someone may have.
