Loading Act in another computer

Please help. Using Act 2009 V11 and am having big trouble trying to load my database into anther computer. Is there a procedure to do this? I have copied my database using copy as and giving it a new name. I am unable to restore a zip file on another computer. What do I do to get this in?

When you back up your db, you can "Restore As" on the other computer. I think Restore is for restoring on the same computer.

You can't restore a backed up zip file on another computer. You have to back up as a copy as and then use on another computer, restore as... After having much trouble and changing names of my DB, I was able to get it installed.
