XP Outlook 2010 backup - Restore to Win7 Outlook 2010

Post by webmaster69 » Thu Mar 15, 2012 11:10 pm

I have a Windows XP PC which is been upgraded to Windows 7 PC, they both have Office 2010 installed.

I tryed restoring the XP backup of Outlook to the Windows7 PC.

But now Outlook on the Windows 7 will not start up. I am receiving an error 'Cannot open your default e-mail folders. File acess is denied. You do not have permission required to access the file C:\Documents and Settings\local Settings\Admin\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst'
This looks like the path to an XP setup and not a Win7 PC setup which is probably why the startup error is occuring?
I'm totally stuck and this is defeating the whole reason I purchased this software, and help will be greatly appreciatted

Hi,

Do you use an administrator account?
