transfering information from one computer to a new one

I bought a new computer and would like to transfer my ACT databases into the new computer. I have tried network transfer, flash card transfer, back up transfer and nothing works. any suggestions.

 

XP to XP both versions are updated (not upgraded) to same version

I did customize the databases alot.

Re: transfering information from one computer to a new one

Did you try "restore as" ?

 

After you create your backup file on the first machine (onto a thumb drive if it will fit) you need to select "restore as" on the new machine and give the database a enw name.  The first database's name is locked to that first machine.
