I just installed Windows 7 on some new hardware. I forgot to export the contacts from Outlook Express. I've put in the old hdd in the new pc. Is it possible to get the contacts from there, or do I have to put in the old hardware and boot from the old hdd?

Personally I would just boot from the old hard drive and get it that way. Finding those files, and importing them can be a pain at times. – KronoS Aug 18 '11 at 19:10
Is it Outlook or Outlook Express contacts you are interested in? Where the contacts reside depends on which one you mean. – TFM Aug 18 '11 at 19:10
It's Outlook Express... – thomas.fogh Aug 18 '11 at 19:59
I'll probably try booting on the new hardware. If it doesn't work I'll just have to install the old hardware again... :( – thomas.fogh Aug 18 '11 at 20:01

Outlook Express

Search the hard drive for .wab file(s)
