ReStoring Problems .. V8/2006

For some reason when i try to restore a file .. i can not. I have a databse on 1 computer and i am trying to transfer it on my laptop.

What i did according to instruction the easies way is to Back up the file. THEN install ACT on laptio and then just simply restore it. All should be good ... but i get 2 problems and messages.


1- I get a message that says .... "the back up of this databse can only be restored on the machine that was used to creat it."


2- message says to use the Restore As option.


I did just as explained. I used the "restore as" option BUT then a ige this large explanation problem saying error ....


Act.Data.ActDb.ActDbException:line 1: incorrect syntax near 's'


then it goes into a large summary in code etc ... which i have no clue what it means ?


my desktop computer is about to die and i need to transfer this info before i loose it !




what do i do ?
