I have a new laptop and I don't have any contacts set up yet.
My desktop is Windows XP. My new laptop is Windows 7.

This will tell you how to find the address book on your XP computer.


Copy the file and move to the new computer.

Then use the steps here to import into Live Mail


To recap...
copy .wab file from old computer.
Select File | Import | Windows address book (.WAB) from the menu in Windows Live Mail. (direct it to the place you put the .wab file.)

Another easy way is to create an export file in Outlook by going to FILE -> OPTIONS -> ADVANCED (might vary depending on the version of Outlook). This creates a comma separated value file (*.csv) that you can copy over to your other computer then import.
