Hi Guys

I have a windows 2003 running Maximizer 12 entrepreneur edition and I want to retire that server and replace it with a Windows 2012 R2 server running the exact same edition of Maximizer.
I installed Max 12 on the new server and I create the exact same address book as the one on the old server, I assign the exact same password for the master.
I made a quick backup of the database on the old server and did the same to the empty database on the new server then I copy the good database from the old server at the same location were the new server store the backup then I try to do a restore on the new server from the backup that I just copy from the old server.
I got the message bellow.
Any idea how can I give the master on the new server the rights to restore the database.
I have the feeling it's an SID problem between the two master but maybe not.
If is any other way to transfer the database I willing to try.
Thank you for your help.

Log in to the sql server management console on the old server, select 'security' in the list of objects on the left side panel, find the user named "master".  Double click to open it. A new little window will open. In its left side panel, select 'server roles' and make a note of what is selected.  Go to the new server and open up to the same place and then you will almost certainly see a different set selected. Set the new server's roles for user "master" to the same as the old server. Then you should be all set.

Alternatively, this might refer to a windows user level account. Log in as a windows administrator and go to the user accounts. Change user "master" to be an administrator instead of a standard user.

Thank you for the info.
I was able to do this on the new 2012 server by installing the 2012 management studio express but I can't install the 2008 management studio express on the 2003 server.
I keep getting this error.

Thank you.
I was not able to install the studio on the 2003 but I add all the rights to the master on the 2012 server and it allowed me to restore the database.
Any idea if the Max entrepreneur 12 has an schedule backup feature built in so I can schedule backups of the database every few days.
Thank you for your help.

Sorry I only know database. I've never even heard of this Maximizer program.
