    Me need help!

    Have installed XP over ME (full install).
    Now the data for all Office Apl seems to be
    there, however he is telling me that programs
    are not installed and setup needs to be run.

    As I have some important messages in my Mail Box
    (Outlook not Outlook Express) I desperately need
    to recover the Adr. and the 'Old Mails' file to import
    it later after reinstalation of Office 2000.

    The info is stored in:

    C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst

    Open up Outlook 2000.
    Go to File > Import and Export.
    Choose "Import from another program or file", press Next.
    Choose "Personal Folder File (.pst)", press Next.
    Type in the path where the .pst file is at, pick your option, press Next.
    Click on which folder you want, pick you option, press Finish.

    Local Settings and Application Data are hidden folders.

    What if I can't find the *.pst file... There's mail in my inbox, but when I search I can't find the *pst file. (system w/ WinXP & Office XP)
    It's quite strange...
    any idea??
