Can I act 2011 database be restored or synced to my Act 6 laptop?

As the subject message asked.  What's the best way to get a copy of my database from 2011 on to my laptop which is running Act 6?

There isn't any way, upgrade the laptop to ACT! 2011.

I use the lap top 2 or 3 times per year.  Can I use the same Act 2011 disk to upgrade the lap top?  If not, could Companion Link work for this?

Yes, you can use the same ACT! 2011 license ... ACT! is licensed per username. You can then set up Application Sync between the two systems

No, CompanionLink can not work for this

Installed 2011.  Can't open data base because of SQL error 1814.  Any tips on SQL Server error 1814?  Can't manually get Act 7 SQL Server to start.

 

Act 6 still opens and works though.

Drive was not set to compress.

 

Uninstalled Act 2011 and SQL Server, reinstalled Act 2011 and it is working now.
