Problem, this is not a network sharing problem but networking the

OS's

may be the only way to solve this problem, here is the question;

Client wanted Win. 7 on notebook to replace Vista H/B SP1, 1st 4

backup DVD's were made from the Vista sys., then the 3 DVD restore

discs were created from recovery mang. New OS was installed (clean

install), client wanted to start using MS outlook 2007 instead of the

Windows Mail that came with Vista H/B OS.

As I was setting up Outlook 2007 with his Register.com email I seen

that Register.com don't seem to archive emails in there server from

POP account users (although I'm sure they do somewhere), this client

was using his emails as someone would use Quick Books, I have all the

contacts in a folder I extracted from the backup DVDs but can't

import

the files to Outlook 2007 mail client, I'm loking for a conversion

method for that, and because the Vista H/B sys. on the 3 DVD's are

from a factory image OS (where you don't have full administrative

privileges) could I install on a XP OS partition on my workstation so

I can retreve the emails from the original Vista OS's Windows Mail

client, or is there a way to export the email directly brom the 4

DVD's backups ?

I installed the Vista H/B (backup) sys. to a partition all the emails

were there and I use Windows mail to export emails and contacts,

folders etc., the backup was stored in a folder 89mb, but using

Outlook 2007 I installed on my OS I can't seem to import nothing.

Windows Mail & Office Outlook 2007 are both Mircosoft apps. there must

be a way to do this .

You might have better luck with this type of thing in a general Outlook

group rather than here in a programming group.

Thanks Ken I looked for such a group, there are MS fourms but I like

google groups even before Google made the big time, I don't think

Windows Mail & Office Outlook 2007 backups are compatible, and if you

guys are the MS office programming gurus and in considering your

response there must not be a way other than just install Windows Mail

as a 2nd client and import the emails and contacts bactup data to that

client.
