I hope this isn't redundant.... I'm running ACT! 2008 on a notebook with XP and data encryption. I want to move one of my databases from that machine to a Windows 7 notebook. I installed the same version of ACT! on the new notebook. I backed up the database to a CD, but the .zip file won't open on the new notebook. There are two older databases that were ported over from the old to new notebook that will open. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Other than the potential issue that ACT 2008 isn't supported on Win7, I'd look at the properties on that file. Most likely , putting it on the cd changed to a read only file. You would be able to change the properties of the file back. If you backed up directly to the cd from teh other machine rather than saving to the hard drive and then copying to cd, you may have a corrupted file on your hands. This would require redoing the backup.
