Act! 2007 to Act! 2008 (Version 9 to Version 10) export/import questions

I have a computer running Act! 2007 standalone version of ACT!.  I have a new computer that I purchased ACT! 2008 for and would like to Export the 2007 database to use in ACT! 2008.  This just needs to be a 1 time Export as I am switching to the new computer with the newer version of ACT!. 

 

I have tried exporting the database, which apparently won't export to a newly created database that I can import.  The save a copy / backup will not restore on the new version at all.

 

What are the proper steps and procedures that I need to take in order to export my entire database from my PC running ACT! 2007 to my new PC running ACT! 2008?

 

Thank you in advance for any help!
