A week ago I was told of this and I have tried a number of fixes including rebuilding the database and such within ActDiag and have restored a new remote database today. Here is the error log I am getting:
======== SYNC SESSION - 2/18/2011 8:40:53 AM ========

[ Info | 2/18/2011 8:40:53 AM ]Message: Sync remote client created.

If that doesn't help, please include version of ACT! (full build from help | about)

Also, does this happen for one user or multiple

I had done this once but I just tried it again since I replaced the remote database with a new sync copy and the same results occur. I decided to try the second method by manually removing the Preferences which I did not try the first time. and Boom... All is good.

Thank you!!!

I had found this KB article and walked through the first method but did not do the second method. Note to self: Always walk through ALL the options presented, even if they seem redundant. LOL
