Are you just trying to copy over the data? If so, you can't.
You have to copy the entire 2.2 database over to a clean/empty
database on the comp2 machine, then run the update on the comp2
machine as per the release notes for Emerlad 2.5. There are many
database changes that make a simple copy not possible.
