    Will my Business Contact Manager for outlook run under Windows 10?

    SQL Server 2008 is not supported on Windows 10. Upgrade MSSMLBIZ Instance to SQL Server 2014 Express, and BCM will run perfectly.

    Windows Upgrade from 8 to 10

    Hello,

    When you say your Act database is version 2012, do you really mean is SQL Server 2012? The answer to that question is really important in order to provide you more accurate information and reach a solution. For instance, SQL Server
    2008 R2 and earlier versions of SQL Server are not supported on Windows 10 while SQL Server 2012 is supported if you apply service pack 2 (SP2). For more information, please read the following article:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2681562

    Users who upgraded to Windows 10 having installed on their computers versions not supported of SQL Server are complaining about having to start SQL Server services manually after the upgrade. To start SQL Server service manually,
    please read the following article:

    How to: Start an Instance of SQL Server (SQL Server Configuration Manager)

    Please contact Swiftpage ACT! Support about the possibility of upgrading the database to a supported version.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Are you still running SQL Server 2005? Time to Upgrade.

    Hello!

    I have an computer running my old ERP program which was based on Microsoft SQL Server 2005. After upgrading from Windows 8.1 32-bit to Windows 10 32-bit it has some difficulties connecting to the database and launching the ERP application (user not found in base error). How can I safely upgrade to Microsoft SQL 2014? I installed the Upgrade Advisor and got a report, how do I proceed with the upgrade? Could I just download the Microsoft SQL Express 2014 and install it? Anything else to do?

    Thank you in advance


    EDIT: Solved! Found the culprit!

    The computer has a small 80GB hard disk which was almost full with about 2-3GB free space. So I compressed the disk and now has about 15GB free. Except I unknowingly introduced an incompatibility! Microsoft SQL server doesn't work properly from a compressed folder. I had downloaded the Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express and run it. Then I chose upgrade and it analyzed my current database before upgrading. Here was were I informed that I could not upgrade a compressed folder and was prompted to select another uncompressed folder. I immediately quitted the setup and proceeded to expand the "Microsoft SQL Server", "Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition" folders and the EPR application folder. I restarted the computer and now it worked at once without any complain!

    So anybody else having problems connecting to your SQL database, first make sure the Microsoft SQL Server folder in Program Files and any other relevant folders are NOT compressed!

    Thank you for your time to read this.
