I am in the process of moving the act database from one server to another and I have run into a snag. I read the postings for moving databases which says to run a backup and then restore to the new server. I tried this and received an error that the application could not read a .bak file, which is a SQL backup file. I have tried stopping the SQL instance and copying the files to a new location, this almost worked, however, the database still has a link to the old SQL database. How do I move the database from one server to the other?

I figured out the problem was that the system did not have rights to create the .bak file on the server. My other question is I have a license code from the initial installation of Act. Can I re-use this code to install the software on the new server?
