Cannot restore remote database to laptop.  Other remote databases working perfectly

Hello,

I have created a remote database to be unpacked to a laptop.  The database is created fine, but when I come to unpacking it I get the error message "Cannot open database "xx" requested by the login.  The login failed. Login failed for user 'ACTSYNC'"
This happens right at the end of the sequence.  After I click OK on the error message, all the attachments of the database are still there - but the PAD file isn't.
I have created another remote database without the attachments and I still get the same error.  All my other remote databases are fine, working and synchronising well.
I don't have a user ACTSYNC listed on ACT, but I do have a user ACTSYNCH which is an administrator.  When I have created the remote database, I have selected that the database can be accessed by "all users and future users of this database"

Can anyone help?

Many Thanks in advance

Hello,
The option for DEP was already set as stated in the article.  I am just uninstalling .Net 2.0 from the laptop and then reinstalling and seeing if that helps.
I have searched around for this error message, and it looks like it's a rare one!

Unfortunately didn't help.  I don't have access to the laptop at the moment as the user needs it back for other things.  Not really too sure what to try next.  i think it must be a machine problem.  I have tried reinstalling ACT from scratch again - to no avail.
