Restoring to a 2nd machine

I backed up my database and opened Act on my other machine. I did "restore as" and that worked fine. I then tried to open and the message I get is that the administrator must login first. I am the administrator on both machines.

Is the second machine Vista?

Both machines are Vista SP1 - never diid get to open a database from either machine if it is on the other. Got plenty of other networked applications that work fine.

Right click on the ACT! icon and choose Run As Administrator and see what happens.
