The above will merge your items in archive into the current folder if that is what you require

If you simply want the archive folder to appear in outlook as a separate entitly
Copy the file to a location on your new pc
(C\users\username\mydocuments\outlookfiles)

Then open the file in outlook
Select "open other outlook file"
