Re-Installing MOA Express 2009 on a New Laptop from old Desktop - Both Win 10

I have used MOA Express 2009 Ver on my Desktop PC Win 10 for some years. I created a Backup to Restore MOA Exp 2009 on my New Laptop Win 10. I used MOAUSexp.exe as the Install File and had issues with Restoring my Previous Backup. I created a Company with the Exact same Name. After Installation, I checked this Installed Version and found it to be 4.0.1930.0 - very much different. I understand that ver = Service Pack 3. I tried to update Ver 4.0.1930.0 with the Service Pack 3, but it would not install. The difference in Versions align with an Error Message I get when I try to Restore my Backup File - It says my Backup was created with a Later Version of MOAExp, and this has proven to be True. When I did my First Install on my old Desktop, I cannot recall ever performing an update to the Installation and from Memory, updates were not available for this Free Special Version. To keep this short, I need the Steps required to Create my Existing Company again on a New Machine, commencing with the only Install File I can find and by using my Backup File from my Old Desktop version. I do not wish to Re-Create all the Existing Accounts again. Also, I do not wish to Purchase new Software, as I Volunteer my services to a Ex Service, Not for Profit Organisation. I am hoping there is still an Expert on this now Out of Date Software, some where, who can provide Step by Step Instructions for what I am trying to do - I thought this would be easy and I am fairly Tech Savvy. Regards and Thank You..
