I posted a question earlier, about replacing a 2008 DC at client site.  They originally had a DC, but since all users are logging in local, they are using dns and dhcp from their router.  Client does not want another domain controller, they want a stand alone server to act as their file server.  The server will be a Windows Server 2019 Essential.  I would like to know what needs to be done to replace the dc with a stand alone server.   How will this affect users and other devices on the network.  Thank you in advance for your help!

I have a client with ACT 2013 on a Windows 10 PC. The ACT Word Processor files .wpa got associated with MS Word and do not open correctly. I need to associate .wpa with Act.UI.WordProcessor.dll in the C:\Program Files (x86)\ACT\Act for Windows folder

I have tried:
>Manually associating.WPA files to Act.UI.WordProcessor.dll but Default Apps won't display/recognize .dll programs
>Resetting the Default Apps and rebooting
>Deleting the Registry Entry for .WPA file association and rebooting
*Each of the above reverts back to MS Word.

Any suggestions?

Hi Guys,
Hopeing i can get some good advise here and assistance.  I started at a new organisation and the current landscape needs some major refits.  The management would like to establish a hybrid between onprem and Azure to move some mission critical apps and data but im relatively new to Azure compute so would like some advise on the best way to do this and what i would need to include Below is a breakdown of current layout

- Internal MPLS with internet break out only had HO (HeadOffice) 1 and HO 2.  All traffic is directed to those to offices for internet as thats where the firewalls are currently located

- All sites have local servers that act as domain controller and File and print.

- Majority application servers are located at HO 1 and HO 2

- All email is already in o365

- Current Azure subscriptions are basically islands. They are not connected to onprem network in any way at all

What we would like to do is

- Remove current mpls and change all sites to SDWAN with VPN connection to each other and Azure
- Migrate all file/print data from local site level into o365 Filestorage/Teams/Groups/Sharepoint
- Maintain bare minimal servers in HO 1 and HO 2 such as local domain controllers and possible one or two applications that need to reside locally for compliance purposes
- Extend our current IP addressing into Azure and add all current server in Azure onto onprem domain (Joined)
- We would want access to sub Azure …

Hi!

The application to be developed consists of Webserver and the TCP Server. The TCP server listens to specific port and keeps on sending Keepalive and messages. While the HTTP server accepts user input and send the data to the TCP Server. So my question here is whether the TCP server can act as the HTTP Server. If so how can this be scheived. I am using Poco C++ libraries for HTTP and TCP server If there is some example please can you guid me here.,

Hi I have ACT and like to sync my contacts with my Droid Phone, they only way I know is what I have been using.  I sync Act to Deja Office through Companionlink.  This part works great, I can verify all 3,800 contacts sync to the onine Deja Office site.  Problem is when I sync my phone to Deja Office with my Droid it completes, but only gives me 2,300 contacts.  I have uninstalled the service on my Droid, and the same number comes through.

A prospect of mine is currently using Act 2011 as their CRM.  They're a small office bound by HIPAA, and have three people currently accessing the Act Database from one users workstation.  They're looking to replace ACT, and would like a relatively inexpensive solution that's HIPAA compliant; a cloud solution would be ideal.  Upgrading to the current version of ACT would run about $1,000, so they're looking for something less than that.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Has anyone successfully used software to sync ACT contacts and activities? Apparently there has been an ongoing issue with the built in feature in ACT to sync contacts/calendars with Outlook 2016. Any help would be much appreciated. Hopefully someone has had a good experience with an add-on software of some type - thank you!

Can someone convert my database over

Has anyone out there every migrated ACT! 2009 from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011?  Old software I know, but I'm trying to help a friend who still uses this.

Essentially I've successfully installed and registered ACT! On the SBS 2011 server and moved all data across from the SBS 2003 server.  I can connect to ACT on the SBS 2011 server locally, but cannot get it working over the network.  Any ideas?

I have a new installation, running ACT!2016 Pro on a Windows Server 2012 r2 box.  The Database is on a local drive and I am attempting to run a daily backup of the database via the ACT Scheduler.  On the Server, I have setup any number of Back up tasks, logged on as an Administrator in both Windows and ACT, to no avail.  
The software is installed onto the C: partition/drive and the database sits on the main partition/drive F:.
Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks!

We have just Installed Act V18 on our company network PC's
We installed a New Windows 10 Enterprise PC called SRV-ACT as the main ACT PC and installed ACT and our database on this.
Database folder is shared with all Domain Users having full control over the share.
The other PC's on our domain are a mix of 2 year old Windows 7 Pro and NEW Windows 10 Enterprise PCs (all 64bit).
On these PCs we did a custom install and installed Act without SQL server (there is no need for local DBs).
Every PC on our network can run Act, open the shared database, view and add attachments without a problem.

Apart from 1 Windows7 PC - called DEV-PC.
This PC always gets the error : 1434 which indicates that port UDP 1434 or TCP Port 1433 is blocked.
The main difference between this PC and the others is it's a development machine and has the following installed:
SQL Server 2008R2 Management Studio and Visual Studio 2012 which installs a whole raft of SQL 2012 utils.

I spent an hour onto Act Support and they dialed into DEV-PC and SRV-ACT and could not fix the problem as they said it was a Firewall issue.
They tried the usual, changing PAD file to IP address, deleting PAD file using ADF file, Setting permissions on shares to everyone etc.
At the time they could not disable the Windows Domain firewall to check it.
I have since done this from GP by giving all domain users the ability to turn off domain firewall and turned off the firewall on DEV-PC and the SRV-ACT PC

I've confirmed …
