Since you're ignoring their suggestions by claiming to know the different locations, here's EXACTLY what you need to do:

1. On the Windows XP machine, click Start, click Run, type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook and then press Enter.
2. Make a backup copy of the .NK2 file
3. In Windows 7, click Start. Next to the Shut down button, in the Search programs and files box, type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook and then press Enter.
4. Copy the .NK2 file into the folder you opened in step 3.
5. In Windows 7, click Start. Next to the Shut down button, in the Search programs and files box, type outlook /importnk2 and then press Enter.

You need to put the data in the correct location.
The storage of data in XP differs in win 7

The Auto-Complete List entries are saved in your Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox or in the Outlook Data File (.pst) for your account.

Yes i know the different locations

When outlook 2010 is launched it automatically creates 8 .dat files but on XP i have those files already. and even if i try to move it this folder a delete the files that got created, when outlook is launched again the files get recreated again.

Thanks
