  2. If you still have the WinXP computer available:
    To export a group go to Start | Run and type
    wab /new
    and save it, giving it the name of the group, keeping the WAB extension.
    Now open your group, select one contact and press Ctrl-A to Select All then
    Ctrl-C to Copy All.
    Go to the new address book, click in the contact area and press Ctrl-V to
    Paste All.
