Database restore and layout in 6.0

I recently had a Harddrive Crash and I had to

reinstall Act. 6.0 on the new one, during this process, i went into

the Restore Database and Clicked on the Zip file from my backup Database on my Jump Drive.


everything thing was backup properly (Layouts, templates, etc)


The problem is when I unzipped the file and opened the Database the layout Section didn't come

over.  (I only have 7 Layouts to choice from and none of which is the one I Customized.


Im Running this on Windows XP Pro. Machine and have sucessfully done this before am i missing somthing?

Check your layout preference location.  Go to Edit and select Preferences.  Under the General tab, change file type to Layouts.  Change the path to the folder you extracted the zip file.
