Can you offer advice? Thanks
Also installed 2011 on another machine. Tranferred contact database via usb and via email, saved it and when I try to open it,
Transferred as a PAD file
"could not find database called contacts on host" then the name of my computer.

this can be a issue related to your sql server or firewall, or windows updates so the question is what did you change on your pc before you did face the issue? (did you update SQL, remove something, installed updates, upgraded to a new os?
in any case when you moved the files, did you stop the ACT7 SQL service before?
did you then move the 3 files and the folder with associated?
you then need to delete the pad file, and open the ADF file...
