Hi all,

This one is driving me crazy.  I moved from server 2003 standard to sbs 2008 server.  Everything is setup and working fine with the domain.  I installed Act 2009 Premium and SQL 2005 express.  I can create a new database just fine.  But when I try to do the "restore as" option for the old database.  It returns an "system.io.pathtoolong exception"  Now the path to the file is very short, and the file name itself is short.  So I know I am not actually exceeding that.  I've updated ACT 2009 with the latest updates.  I upgraded SQL Server to 2008 express 64 bit edition, and still the same thing.  Any ideas would be greaty appreciated.
