Cannot import demo package into complete Trados 2009 version

Dear colleagues

I work on two different computers, one of which has Trados 2009 professional version installed, and the other one works with the same 2009 version, but demo.
I created a package in the demo version, and now need to correct the files on the complete version. The problem comes on the import process: I can have access to the contents of the package at the reviewing stage of it, but when I arrive at "Finish", the software generates a "You cannot import the project because you created the project" error or something like this, and so it won't let me complete the import process. When I created the package, I specified different users for the "assigned by" and "assigned to" parts, so I don't understand what this message refers to. Does anybody know whether the problem lies instead on the fact that the package was created in a demo, so that some demo-originated error may be hindering the process?
In any case, the question I am most concerned with is... how can I rescue / save / change format on all these translated files, which display as "read-only" in the reviewing stage of the import process? When I right-click on them, no option appears either for some action to do.

Many thanks for any help provided.
