ACT Scheduler is Greyed

Hi

I have act for premium 2009v11 in two machines (one in server having XP Pro and one in my laptop with vista business).

Everything works fine, but I need to activate the ACT Scheduler so I can take the backup of the database automatically. My ACT Scheduler is Greyed and I am not sure about the reason for it.

Please suggest.

Hi
I started from all programs and there is scheduler running icon to my taskbar but the scheduler doesnt work.

I mean I set a back up for everyday at 1 PM yesterday and it didnt backup the file today. My laptop and server was on.

Note. I am trying to save the backup on my laptop while database server is an xP machine.

Ahhh... ok, if you want the scheduler to run on a machine that the database isn't on, or to backup to another machine, you need to change the service login to an account with access to the folders on both machines.

See this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/5crs65

I am having same issue in same scenario..(Database in different machine-( MS Server 2008-64 bit) and Vista 32 bit Clent machines and both are in Domain)

I tried your solutions but as of now no luck...I made logon as domain Administrator but still its grayed in ACT.
When I opend it from vista client machine via all programms, ACT sceduler service is starting and I can assign a task also. Neverthless task is not happening which I scheduled.(calendar,backup etc...)

Any suggestions?
