i have ACT 9.0 installed on a server, and i deploy several remote databases for field sales folks. I have made several remote db's (one for each sales guy). It has gone smoothly until today. I have created another rdb file, and when I go to unpack and restore, I get "zip file contains an invalid database". All machines are running the same version of ACT, and I have tried creating 3 different .rdb files, and all 3 are kicking back the error.

I just had the same error today; found in another thread that the problem is version inconsistency's. Check that all your ACT! have been updated.
I just did a re-install and remote packed from the updated version, but had not updated the recipient version...
let me know how you go.
EDIT: i had to do it this way, goto
Do the steps to setup database sharing from the main one-->
Create a remote database & save file directly to the destination computer-->
Upack & restore a remote database-->
Follow prompts & restore locally.
