BCM 2007 B2TR Backup/Restore

This question seems to have been asked but never adequately answered so
perhaps I give it another try.

My environment is Vista RC1 running Outlook/BCM 2007 B2TR at home and
Windows XP SP2 running Outlook/BCM 2007 B2TR at the office. I'm trying
to backup my extensive BCM DB using the BCM BACKUP/RESTORE dialog
provided within BCM/database tools.
To clarify before we get start, in my Vista installation there are only
two account, one is the built-in Admin account which I've enabled and
the second is my personal account which supposedly has admin
privileges. Of course this is not true because we all know that MS
didn't make "user admin" accounts exactly equal with the built-in
"Admin" account in Vista. And herein lies the problem which is as
follows;

I've been trying to restore a backup copy of my Office 2007 BCM B2TR db
from my office machine (the XP one listed above) to a new installation
of BCM B2TR on my Vista machine at home under my user account. It fails
with the following error message;

"Cannot restore this database because you were not authorized to
backup or restore this databases when this one was originally backed
up. For more information, please contact the database owner of the
systems administrator for more information. Your local database was
not changed."

When I logon as the built-in Admin on the same Vista machine at home
the database can be restored without any problem.

This administrative/user privilege #@&* really sucks but I would
greatly appreciated it if someone knows if there's a proper procedure
for this!!!!!!!!!

After restoring the database as admin, can the regular user use that
database from BCM?

The DB may only be accessed by a user after the DB has been shared by
the built-in admin. Of course the DB is owned by the built-in admin
account.

This is most probably a Vista security error since the backup/restore
procedure works when A) The DB is backed up and then restored by the
same user on the same machine or B) The built-in admin restores any
backed up DB from any machine.

I think this is a question for MS but I don't know who or how to ask.
