Moving data to a new computer

I have been an Act user for some time now. Last year, I bought a copy of v.11.0 and used it on my laptop. I backed up files religiously. Now, the laptop has gone back to the employer, but my data still remains. I reinstalled on my new system running Vista Ultimate 64-bit. The program installed without a hitch, but it won't take the activation code generated. I am working on that with customer service. In the meantime, while in demo mode, when I try and install my 60+ megabyte backup, the program chugs along and everything appears great, until I open it up and find one entry in the database.Is the demo mode database size limited?

Also, when I try and import files, the import window appears not to see my databases.


Any help is appreciated

Re: Moving data to a new computer

Your backup isn't as up to date as you thought, apparently.  There is no limit when in trial mode, assuming you backed up using Act, I hope you have another backup file, because that one is what it is...nothing.
