Problem with restoring dashboard.bak (error 5)

Hello and gratz for the project.

I just started working on it and I have a few problems.
When I try to restore the db I get the following msg.
Can anyone help?

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express

Restore failed for Server 'gxa\sqlexpress'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Express.Smo)

I have also a question. I downloaded the latest source code and it's not compatible with vs2005. Is this as it's supposed to be? I try to open the .sln file and the message from vs2005 is "this is a solution project file but it's from a newer version and cannot be opened."...something like that.

thanks in advance for the help.

I managed to restore it in a different location rather than the default with the same file names.
Anyway...
