How can I import my nk2 file into Outlook 2010?

I have Outlook 2010 and I need to import my Outlook.NK2 file from a previous version of Outlook.

I'm using an NK2Edit utility that I found at:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_edit.html

I'm following the procedure pasted below, which I found at
http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/email/understanding-outlooks-autocomplete-cache-nk2/

It's not working.  The Outlook.NK2 file isn't being renamed as per the procedure, and the email addresses aren't appearing in my Outlook cache.

What am I missing?  Thanks

>>>> Procedure I'm following is pasted below<<<<<<<<

To import .nk2 files into Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013, follow these steps:
1.Make sure that the .nk2 file is in the following folder:
 %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook
 The .nk2 file must have the same name as your current Outlook profile. (By default, the profile name is “Outlook.”)
2.Press Windows Key + R to open the Run dialog.
3.In the Open box, type (or paste) outlook.exe /importnk2, and click OK to import the NK2 into your profile.

I suggest you use the Microsoft Support article for this. NK2 files get imported into Outlook 2010 which then uses Stream Autocomplete. No more NK2 files.

Thanks.  My problem was:  I had named it Outlook.NK2 and my profile was New.  So I had to rename the file to New.nk2 and it worked fine.
