Stop the MSSQL$ACT7 service then you'll be able to copy the folder containing your database (KB Article) on the new computer (using USB pen, ...).

When the database is on the new computer, open ACT, click on File > Open, look for the ADF file and choose the one belong in the copied folder.
In this way, ACT will re-attach the database on the sql instance of your new computer.
