I cannot get the server to run one one of the computers - thus I opted to buy the new version and do a clean install on a new computer I just purchased. On this one, the server is running and has mounted the default DeLormeSampleDB database, but of course that db does not contain my custom-made layers. I do have the older db and all the files from the old computer, including at least one backup, but I cannot get that backup to mount on the new computer (I start DB Manager and try to restore the file, but receive the error
"A database exception occurred while restoring the specified database. Directory lookup for the file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\BalloonMaps2.mfl" failed with the operating system error 3(the system cannot find the path specified.)."
I'm betting that this is related to the fact that this is a new installation without any prior history of this backup or the original db file. Trouble is, the file location structure on this Windows 7 x64 computer are much different than the structure on the preceeding Windows 7 non-x64 installation. I do have a full disk backup of that pc, but no longer have that pc to resort to.
One of the other times I tried to get this resolved, I think I used the Microsoft Studio to somehow migrate the real DB or restore a backup. Trouble is, I no longer have a working version of XMap with a working database engine to make a new backup - just the older backups and the actula DB files in the SQL subdirectories.
