Why can't I see any Application Systems in my Des 2000 Popup Window?

I just migrated my database that supports Des/2000 version 2.1 from 7.3.4 to 8.1.5. I did not upgrade Designer and don't plan to at this time.
Due to lack of any specific documentation anywhere on how to migrate this database, I simply created a brand new database of the same name on a different box as 8.1.5 and imported a full database dump that I had exported from the system Oracle ID on the old 7.3.4 database.

I doubted this would work but thought I would try. I changed my tnsnames.ora
file on my NT to point to the new database and brought Des/2000 up. The Application System pop-up window comes up and shows me no Application Systems. If I hit cancel on this popup, I can get to and bring up the Repository
Adminstration Utility. I selected Upgrade, went through the various steps,
and everything says that my repository is already up to date.

I feel that I am missing some script. Perhaps a catxxxx for Designer/2000. Is there any such thing? Is there anything else I can run from the Repository
Administration Utility that will make my Application Systems show up in the pop-up window?

Can anyone point me to any documentation on how to migrate a database supporting Des/2000 without upgrading Designer? I have looked through a lot on online documentation on Technet, Metalink but all of it assumes that
you are upgrading Designer.

Thanks in advance to any kind soul who can help. I've posted multiple times on this topic but not recieved any specific steps to run.
