outlook 2010 home and business can't run outlook.exe

I am trying to import an nk2 file into office 2010 home and business. When I try to launch outlook.exe from the run... dialog it says it can't find. I know that office 2010 home and business runs a virtualized version of the applications. does anyone know a way around this?

In office 2010 you had to put the NK2 File in the following Folder:
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

After you restart Outlook it should work1

no this is on Windows XP. The usual place ..\appplication data\microsoft\outlook\  does not work. all ms posts on this require using outlook.exe /importnk2 but this does not work on the home and business version as it virtualizes the appilcation.

looks like this is implementing the 'click to run' option that MS is offering.

This resolved my issue with this problem:

1.      Download NK2Edit http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_edit.html

2.      (With Outlook Closed) Open NK2Edit.exe and navigate to original NK2 or the LARGEST Stream_AutoComplete file.
a.      NK2 - Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\User profile\Applications Data\Microsoft\Outlook
b.      NK2 – Win 7: C:\Users\User profile\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
c.      Stream_AutoComplete: C:\Users\User profile\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache\

3.      Make a backup of the file:
a.       Create a new folder - C:\Users\User profile\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache\Backup
b.      Name it: NK2_FILE.nk2

4.      Take all of the files located in “RoamCache” (step 2C above) and Move them into the backup folder.
a.      C:\Users\User profile\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache\Backup

5.      Open Outlook. This will create a whole new set of Stream_Auto Complete files.

6.      Close Outlook.

7.      Use NK2Edit.exe to open your backup file: NK2_FILE.nk2

8.      Save it over the new Stream_AutoComplete file (there will only be one to choose from in the application).

9.      Open Outlook and Test.


Hope this helps!
