Hello, on one of our old lab machines I stupidly upgraded the system to Windows 10 and have wiped the databse out. I have installed SQL 2014 and have got the new notebook to work (can add chemistry etc). But i cannot restore the backup as the restoreDB function keeps giving the error that "This applucation works only with SQL Server 2008".

Can I either:

1) Manually move old backup files into the correct folders to restore my old DB

2) turn off the warning in the restoreDB function?

Any help would be great as I cannot go back to windows 7 and didn't realise 2008 no longer worked in windows 10!!!!

Our E-Notebook 13.0.x (included with our ChemBioOffice Ultra 2013 suite) required SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition as backend database. If your machine doesn’t contain SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition then it is not possible to restore the database (created with the SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition).

Unfortunately our v13.0 products are not supported on Windows 10 as well as SQL server 2014. If you plan to use E-Notebook then you need install the product on Windows 7 with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition.
