Hi Guys

I am trying to create a new databse on SAGE ACT 2011 new installation, I believe it interogates the MS SQL 2008 R2 in order to initiate the process of creating the database

When I try to create a new database I get the following error in windows app log

Does the file/folder F:\Sage\Sage ACT\rclactdb.ADF exist?

And has the SQLEngine permissions to use it?

That explains this error. Make sure that the ACT service accoutn can access that file location and has permissions to access the file. If it is on a restricted drive, you may need to add necessary permissions to access it.

I cannot seem to find the specified SQL account to give the permission, when I installed the product it did install Microsot SQL Server 2008 R2.. but I only see accounts for another instance of sql 2005 being used for our backup software..

hmmm a bit stuck
