What's the exact problem (error message)? Just open Outlook first, and use File > Open  > PST file from there.

After Open, don't select "other mailbox", select "Outlook Data File"

Just to clarify what you are trying to do.  You already have an existing pst which you want to add.

Go to the Account Settings > Data Files (as shown in your print screen)
Then Click Add...
Browse the pst file which you want to add
Select the pst file and click ok

Then pst will be added.

Can you check what is the registry value for the below key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook

Anthony,
Within 12.0, I see no Outlook folder. I'm using Outlook 2010.

Your missing the "Open Outlook Data File" option. I think your Office installation is messed up. Try repair, or full uninstall/re-install

start regedit, find:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\

See if there's anything mentioning DisablePST, if found, delete the key.

Can you add other .pst's?  It might be that the Exchange Admin has locked your ability to add files

Open your registry and add the below key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\<x>.0\Outlook

DWORD Value: DisablePST
Value: 0

If DisablePST was preventing this then HuaMinChen would see:
GPO or Registry setting disabling PST use.
"Operation not supported" does suggest there's file corruption rather than deliberate disabling.

☠ MASQ ☠ , I tot it was good to be sure pst was not being disabled anywhere.

HuaMinChen, are you using any kind of archiving solution for archiving emails?  Something like Symantec Virtual Vault.

Probably Kimputer is right.  You need to try repairing or uninstall/reinstall office.  Probably something is corrupted.
