Possible Reason :

The Firebird version in this computer is lower than the Firebird version used in the old server.


Solution :

To success restore, you must install the same or higher Firebird Version.

1) Log out payroll.

2) Uninstall Firebird.

3) Check the Firebird version at old server.

4) Install the same or higher Firebird Version.

 (Note : AutoCount Payroll does not support Firebird 3.0 and above)

5) After installation, you will be able to restore the backup file.
