I'm not sure you should be taking advice from me
I can't imagine I'm the first to make the move from V3 to V4 on Windows 8
But that sequence of install did work for me.
As we are on the subject of SQL I wonder if anyone can offer some assistance with regard to the backup and restore of the Myriad/Autotrack SQL DATABASES?
The process is not quite as straight forward as the backup and restore of the old JET Database.
I have so far taught myself how to backup using the SQL server management studio.
The four .bak files listed below are what I "suspect" I need (not sure if I need the system databases?)
I would like to know if the backups are valid usable files, but I'm very nervous about the restore procedure.
Any help or advice would be most welcome.
