There is no need to import a contacts file; use the Outlook Hotmail Connector to connect to your Hotmail account in Outlook 2003. This will then automatically download and sync your Hotmail mail, contacts and calendar to Outlook.

For your installation error; remove Office 2003 completely and then do a custom install. You can now select which components to install. Don't forget to apply Service Pack 3 for Office 2003 and additional updates aferwards.

No settings/data will be lost during this process, but it of course never hurts to make a backup first.

I am already connected to outlook hotmail connector and i do receive my hotmail, although i have to do this manually where it used to sync automatically on my old laptop; and the contacts and calendar did not automatically sync.
