I want to move my Outlook 2010 files from a Windows XP box to a Windows 7 box. Outlook uses three folders on XP:

My Documents\Outlook Files
Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

I have found three folders on Windows 7 after running a new installation of Outlook once but without configuring anything:

Documents\Outlook Files
App Data\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
App Data\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

How do I map the Outlook files from the Windows XP box to the Windows 7 box?
