Restore appears to be bugged.

Scenario:  transfer of a database from another PC/

 

Steps

1.  Backed up database

2. Installed Act/SQL on new PC

3. Recreated database

4. Tried to restore but the username and password would not be accepted.  I have never set passwords.

 

Work around

Use Restore as to a new database name.  The username and password (left blank) were then accepted.

 

Question

Will there be a fix for this?

When you move a database backup to another computer you must use restore as. I don't see any bug.

Explain why you have to use Restore As ?

Re: Restore appears to be bugged.

Because the database must be attached to the SQL server and restore can only restore a previously attached database that is still resident on the SQL server. Restore As allows attaching a database as a new database.
