problems putting ACT on new computer

I have ACT 11.1 version.  I am trying to put it on my new computer.  Old computer is using Windows XP.  I made a backup copy of the database and then brought it over to the new computer.  When I went to open it up it told me I need to update to work on the new computer which is running Windows 7.  It says that I do not have windows administrator authority.  I am the only user of this computer and I am the administator.  Not sure where to go from here.

ACT 11 is not compatible with Windows 7. You will either need to return to XP or upgrade ACT to version 12
