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?

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
Good deal - suprised there isn't a converter though but I'm sure there will be at some point :)
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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
