Cannot move 2013 database from Windows 7 workstation to Windows 2008 server

Good morning,

 

I am in the process of upgrading from Act 6 to Act! 2013.  I was unable to upgrade the database on the server itself but successfully upgraded the database on an XP workstation.  My problem now is that I am unable to move the database to the server.  It says "there is already a copy of the database with the same name" on the server.  I have deleted every instance of the old database from the server but I still cannot make this work.  Any recommendations?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

you tried with "Detach Database" (Actdiag)  from the server?

I can't get the database to move to the server though. Can I simply copy all the files over and then do this?

If you want you can try to restore the database With another name. (Using Restore As)

NOTE. .. if you are moving the database with Backup (XP Computer)  and Restore (On the Server)

"Restore as " did the trick. Thanks so much!
