  • Installation: Server, client PCs and if required configure web access

SQL Server Edition Recommendations

SQL Express limits processor use to a single CPU but allowing multiple cores, memory used by SQL to 1 GB, and the size of your data file to 10GB. For this reason, we recommend SQL Standard for any deployment over 20 users or 5 GB in size, allowing for growth. Individual performance may vary based on actual database size, hardware variations, and product usage.

1. Higher specification PCs and networks will improve performance, and may be recommended for certain Operating System choices. Consult Microsoft documentation for more details.
2. Additional disk space may be required as local database size increases.
3. SSL Secured Mail Services are not supported.
4. Anti-Virus products are recommended but should be disabled during install and re-enabled afterwards. As with any Anti-Virus product, some configuration may be required for Act! to perform properly.
5. Server Core installations of Windows Server 2008 R2 are not supported.
6. Only for supported for upgrades, not new/clean installations of Act!.
