Is there a way to save contact information from Microsoft Business Contact Manager if only the ".MDF" file exists?

Microsoft Business Contact Manager 2007 was installed on my PC and the hard drive crashed. A technician was able to save the ".MDF" file but either there wasn't an ".LDF" file or it was somehow missed. I purchased a new Windows 10 computer and reloaded Outlook and Business Contact Manager

By the size of the ".MDF" file I assume it contains the actual contact information. Is there some way to access the contact information?

As far as I know the LDF file is not that important (Logs etc.)

Treat it as an SQL Server file and try this on a copy ...

To give permission to .ldf and .mdf files (because you have changed the user name) ...
Right click on the .ldf file and click on properties.
Click on security tab and click on Add.
Type “everyone” without quotes in the “Enter the object name to select” and click on Ok.
Check the box below ALLOW, click on Apply and Ok .

EDIT:   Another useful link ...
