importing dbx file from CD (oe5)

Hi

I've tried the normal route i.e. file>import>messages>MOE5> etc

error message showing:

"no messages can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open Please selest another folder or try closing applications that may have files open"

is there another way to restore dbx files?

thanks in advance

Greetings, m25!
  Sometimes the import feature in OE does not work well. Copy the files right to the email folder. If you don't know where your present email folder is located, at the OE toolbar, select Tools > Options > Maintenance > Store Folder

Best wishes, war1

You are trying to import directly from the CD?  That won't work.  You need to copy the file(s) to a folder on your hard drive and uncheck the ReadOnly bit (through My Computer).  Then you should be able to read it fine.
