    Hi Jo,

    You just need to copy the .WAB files to a folder on the Desktop or user folder in Vista, then open the "C:\Users\(your username)\Contacts" folder and click Import (on toolbar). Select "Windows Address Book......" and click Import. Navigate to the folder with the .WAB files in it and select it and click Open.
