Do you have a WAB here:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
...where <username> is your windows login name?
That's the default location for the WAB every time I've looked for it.
You can open it just by double-clicking it, even if it's not the one
associated with your profile.
If that is the one you want, I would recommend moving it into your "My
Documents" folder and editing the registry to indicate that is the
address book for your profile. More on that if you manage to find the
WAB you want.

It looks like it's a date problem.
Google didn't archive the original post, only the answers. So maybe AndyB
advancing the date by seven years, managed that. He apologizes in the
for his date mistake.
