I assume you have outlook.

You would simply import your WAB file into outllok.

As dacasey said,

If you are using outlook do the following:
File>Import and export>Choose Outlook Express in the list>Navigate to the file location

If you are using Vista or Win7 and don't have Outlook, then open your Windows Contacts folder (just type Contacts into the search box), click Import on the toolbar, and follow the prompts.

You can import your wab file into Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook or other email client.
But you can also open and optionally export your wab file using Dawn, a free utility for address books import/export.
