Import contacts from Win Mail to Win Live Mail

Likes # 0

I have installed Win 7 and Win Live Mail.

I have my old OS (Vista) on a secondary Hard Drive and have managed to import all the messages from the old drive.

Now I want to obtain my list of contacts but cannot see how. I have trawled through this question via the search box search and the nearest answer is to export them first. Unfortunately I did not do that.

Can this be done?

Your contacts are saved under

C:\Users[USERNAME]\Contacts, you should be able to find them there on your old hard drive. Having located them you may be able to import them into Live Mail from the old location.

Brilliant - thank you so much.

I was trying to make it difficult when the answer was so simple.

Cheers
