Microsoft has announced that as of April 12, 2016, they will no longer be supporting Microsoft SQL Server 2005 – see more info here
How does this impact Act! users?
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 is used in the following versions of Act!:
- Act! 9.0 (Act! by Sage 2007)
- Act! 10.0 (Act! by Sage 2008)
- Act! 11.0 (Act! by Sage 2009)
- Act! 12.0 (Act! by Sage 2010) – although some Act! 12.0 versions may use SQL 2008 R2
If you are using a version of Act! that communicates with SQL Server 2005, it is strongly recommended that you upgrade your database to the latest version of Act! so that it can communicate with a newer and supported version of SQL. When you upgrade to a more recent version of Act! you will also receive a more recent version of SQL that will remain supported by Microsoft.
The current version of SQL Server deployed with Act! is SQL Server 2014
