I have a folder full of old Outlook Express 6
files and I want to open them in Outlook10. Where
do I find the Outlook10 program?

What is "Outlook10"? Do you mean Outlook 2010? You buy it. Often as part of
Microsoft Office.

Yes I have it, but I wanted to know where the
Outlook2010 is located on the HDD so I can use
this to open the OE6 files.

Have you considered typing Outlook in the Start search bar?

That is a *very standard* way of finding a program.

I did, but it gave a weird location I can't get
to.

Are these "OE6 Files" dbx files, or eml files? If dbx, is Folders.dbx
included in the folder?

Don't you know how to run a program?

Go to the Start orb. Click it.

Type the name of the program in the Search Box, which is the box at the
bottom that says "Search programs and files" (in my case I only have to
type ou to get to the next step).

In the pane above the search box, you will now see the word Outlook
along with some extra text. What I see is Microsoft Office Outlook 2003,
because that's the version I have.

If Outlook is not highlighted, highlight it with the mouse or with the
arrow keys.

Press Enter.

Outlook is now running.

If the above doesn't work, either you don't have Outlook installed, or
you're not running Windows 7 or Vista, or you didn't follow the
instructions above.

If you're running 32 bit, it should be here:
c:\program files\microsoft office\office14

That's completely unnecessary information, though. There's no need to
run a program by finding its executable, buried somewhere deep in the
program folder structure.

Just do what Gene Bloch described earlier in this thread.

Peter, you're doing it again. You have a history of not describing your
problem and of omitting all pertinent information. I understand that
you don't know much about computers, and that's OK, we would like to
help, but please describe fully what it is you're trying to do.

Just curious...how do *you* run programs? Do you seriously navigate to
where they're installed?

Outlook 2010 doesn't open OE6 files.

You have to
(a) export them from OE to Outlook
or
(b) import them in Outlook from OE

I know it's unnecessary; but the poster wanted to know.

Windows maintains a Registry or Hive with information to enable the
PC to execute (registered) programs directly from the prompt:
/ Start / Run /
This has been normal since Win98 or Win95. The Registry makes
it unnecessary to "navigate to where they are installed."

Hi, Peter.

And, of course, all the above is only for MAIL files in OE. Outlook doesn't
do NEWS posts at all.

Hopefully, Jason will realize that your post is directed toward him,
not me.

As others have pointed out you don't need to know where it is installed to
run it. Just run it. Either with the shortcut that was placed in your
StartMenu when you installed it, or by typing Outlook into the search box.

Or, just trade your laptop in for an etch-a-sketch.

Now *that* made me laugh...
