Transfer DB from Act 188.8.131.52 to Act 10.0.1.179?
I have the back up file from the old Act version 184.108.40.206.
I just bought and installed ACT 10.0.1.199.
How do i add it to the new version including all the documents.

Ok, I dont want to step on anyones toes - but that is not how you would convert a version 5 database.
What you will need to do is work with your original v5 database files rather than the backup (.zip), Make sure that they are on the machine that has v10 installed.
In ACT! v10 go to File -> Open Database.
Change the 'files of type' value from *.PAD to *.DBF (act v5 format). Now attempt to open your version 5 *.DBF file to prompt the conversion wizard
You may also find the following article of some use.
One side note, if you encounter errors through the conversion you may need to upgrade 5 -> 6 -> 10
