I have a workstation in a domain environment.  Old workstation was XP.  Copied .NK2 file and pasted it into C/users/user/appdata/local/microsoft/outlook.

When I open up outlook and compose a new email, no names are auto-populating.

the file should go under roaming folder in that path; not local

Where does Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 save my information and configurations?

OK, so should I remove the file from the current location?
c:/users/user/appdata/local/micorosoft/outlook
and then run the switch?

OK, went to "local" path and cut .NK2 file, then browsed to roaming folder location.  Renamed existing .NK2 file to OLD and pasted in .NK2 file.  Opened up outlook and tested.  Path was the issue.

Thank you Seth2740.
