Help with recovering database

I have done this in the past but doesn't seem to be working in ProSeries 2020.

 

I am trying to recover the Employer/Payer Database.  I have copied eindb.cdx abd eindb.dbf  however the information doesn't show up.  I was able to copy these same files on 2 other computer to address this issue in 2019; however it's not working in 2020.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That won't work in ProSeries 2020 because the underlaying database technology has changed. You need to install ProSeries 2020 on the same machine where ProSeries 2019 is installed so that the contents of the database gets transferred properly. Once you do that, you can copy "eindb.db" to other machines.
