Important Notice for Act! Customers – SQL Server 2008


Your version of Act! may be at risk

Microsoft® has announced that after July 9, 2019, they will no longer be offering extended support for Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2. If your version of Act! runs Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, this means that after July 9, 2019, you will no longer receive key security updates from Microsoft. Continuing to run Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 past this date may put systems and applications at an increased risk of potential security vulnerabilities.

To avoid possible security threats, we recommend you upgrade to the latest version of Act!, which includes Microsoft SQL Server 2014.

Act! versions released with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2:

  • Act! v17
  • Act! v16
  • Sage ACT! 2013
  • Sage ACT! 2012
  • Sage ACT! 2011
  • Sage ACT! 2010

How do I verify my version of SQL?
