    hiya, just formatted a machine back to xp from vista home premium..but cant re-import the contacts into xp's address book.
    is there a utility or some way to convert separate .contact files to XP's .wab?

    cheers

    Not that I was able to find easily - do you have access to a Vista box? Can you do something such as saving or exporting to a compatible format that XP can use?

    yeh i ended up doing that, we always acronis cutomers machines to our server before doing any work, so went back to vista, and it lets you export as vcf which did the trick, cheers

    Hi KC,

    I used a program called Express Assist 9. I just used the trial version during the smart swap back to XP, no need to use the full version.
