I just installed ACT 2010 on a Vista machine. My earlier version of ACT 2006 is on a different computer. I want to export or somehow get the database to the new computer and upgrade it.
I copied the database onto a jump drive, so I have a PAD file on the jump drive. The error message is that they database cannot be accessed, and that I should check my network connection and verify that the network server is available, and that I may need to disable the firewall.
But the jump drive is local to the machine with the new ACT 2010.
I copied all of the files from the jump drive to the database directory and the error message is the same.
I did a backup and restore, but when I open the new database in the new program, it asks for user name and password, which I do not think I have set in the original file.
How do I get the database to the new machine and the new version?
