Which version of BitShares you have made a backup from!?
BitShares Client version or BitSharesX ?

Do you have a wallet.dat backuped or as .json file?

so you've double checked if you're using same password with spelling errors etc?

you should try to install new version from

www.bitshares.org/downloads

and then try to import via account key tap!
Did you try this? It will takes some to download blockchain complete first time…

If that worked okay, you should be able to directly upgrade to latest version and it should keep your same wallet.
