Unable to open 2005 DB in 2009

The DB came from a NTBackup file of the laptop. The laptop died, so we purchased a new one and now trying to restore a copy of the DB.

 When I select the file to open it gives the following error:

 

"The database you are attempting to open must be updated to a newer version. You do not have appropriate permission to update the database. Please contact your administrator to update it."

 

Any suggestions?

 

thanks.

IF this is a Vista machine, right click the ACT icon and choose run as administrator to launch.

Thanks for the reply. However this is an XP machine that is fully patched.
