movie act 2009 to new pc with V16 on the new one

I need to move my database (V11 2009) from one PC to a new PC but the new PC has v16 on it.  I tried to upgrade the database to v16 on old PC, it wouldnt work.  Can i move it all over, then upgrade it? Or do I have to get it upgraded first?

Do a backup of the database on the old computer and then do a Restore As of the database on the new computer in ACT! 16

Ok, but if I do a "Restore", i wont get any of my history, notes, etc...right?  I HAVE to have my "oppurtunities" moved over.  That may cause an issue.
