How Do I Export Auto-Complete Contacts

I am trying to export auto-complete contacts from an old CPU to a newer one. The CPU that I am
exporting from is running Office 2007, and the CPU that I am trying to import to is running
Office 2010.

Copy the nk2-file to the "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook" folder (assuming the client is Windows 7)

Rename the nk2-file to the name of your mail profile:
In the Control Panel, type "mail" into the search box.
Run the Mail applet.
Click on the Show Profiles… button.
By default, your profile is called “Outlook”. So in that case you would call your file “outlook.nk2”.
Start Outlook with the /importnk2 switch:
outlook.exe /importnk2

Outlook will import the NK2 data into the Suggested Contacts folder.

So am I supposed to create a new profile in the mail applet?

Sorry about the late reply. I am in Australia and it's Saturday here now.

You name the file whatever the name of your Outlook Profile is. As it says above, that defaults to "Outlook". This is assuming you have already created a profile of course. If you run the mail applet as described above and click on the "Show Profiles..." button, you will see the name of the profile.

As for copying the file from a Vista user running Office 2007, that's fine.
