With the release of Acctivate 10, Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express will now be distributed in the new server installation of Acctivate. If you are installing Acctivate for the first time, this version of SQL Server will be installed during the Acctivate installation. If you are an existing user, upgrading Acctivate from version 9 to version 10 using the Acctivate Update or Cumulative Update installer will NOT upgrade Microsoft SQL Server automatically. Instead, you may need to manually upgrade SQL Server by downloading one of Microsoft’s SQL Server versions.
