We use Act Professional for Workgroups 8.0 for storing all kinds of data.

I notice that as I have Act installed on my computer, I have a SQL instance called <machinename>\CL7.

Is it possible to get access to this data, so that we can integrate this into our other data management systems?

I've tried connecting to the SQL instance using SQL Server Management Studio, but it doesn't let me login using Windows Authentication. Is there perhaps somewhere in the Act program files that I can find a usable SQL login for our Act installation?

Is there any other way to access the Act data?

We're using C# and Visual Studio 2005.
