Clients XP desktop won't boot at all, hdd may not be spinning.

I installed a new hdd, and reloaded XP and Office XP.

I changed the jumper on the old hdd to slave and copied everything to a folder on the new hdd.

So now I have everything from the old hdd. How do I access the old address book?

Hi Newtons_Lawyer,
Opening WAB address Books

Locate wab.exe and run it from command line


wab  Opens the default Address Book, the one used by OE
wab /? Display this list of switches

wab /a Opens the default Address Book in administrator mode, allowing access to all folders of all Identities. This switch is not
displayed in the /? list.

wab /Open Shows a file dialogue to select a *.wab file
wab /New Shows a file dialogue to create a new *.wab file
wab filename.wab Opens the specified *.wab file
wab directory-name Opens a file dialogue to select a *.wab file in the specified directory (folder)
