'Could not find local header...' error when importing Act 2007 DB into Act 2012 Premium

Hi,

 

I'm following this article for migrating an ACT database:

http://kb.sagesoftwareonline.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19818

 

I can run the backup process successfully on the old Act 2007 server. I copy the zip file to the new Act 2012 Premium for Web Server. I run the restore database procedure, and after a few seconds it throws the error:

 

"Could not find a local header where one was expected in the zip file. Type:Xceed.Zip.ZippedFile....."

 

I repeated the process, and created a new backup file, and tried importing that, but got the same error.

 

Am i doing something wrong? Suggestions for a fix greatfully received.

 

TIA

The message certainly implies a damaged zip file... a work-around is to copy the files directly to the new machine without performing a backup.  Instructions: KB Article 23392
