.nk2 file missing?

I am attempting to copy a users autocomplete entries from one computer to another and am unable to locate the .nk2 file.
I checked EE, and also refrenced these:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/copy-the-autocomplete-list-to-another-computer-HA010097887.aspx
http://www.msoutlook.info/question/478

One site says,
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
the other says,
drive:\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.

It isn't in either folder, and hidden files and folders are shown.

I should note that i am unable to log on to the user's profile.  The computer was on a domain and now it is in a workgroup.

"if your useing Windows 7 and Windows Vista then the locaton is drive:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\EoamCache"

I navigated to that location and there is no EOamCache folder or file, only a .KFL, and several .OAB and .OBI files.
