Windows 7: Windows Mail messages into Live Mail

Windows Mail messages into Live Mail

I upgraded my wife's computer from Vista to Windows 7 yesterday. Before starting the process I copied old Vista info to a second drive. I did not realize that Windows 7 did not utilize Windows Mail before starting the upgrade process (dummy me!).
In proceeding through the Dell provided upgrade disks, I selected Upgrade as my option.
Now, I am not able to Import my old Windows Messages into Windows Live Mail. The upgrade process created a folder called Windows.old and I have my separately saved Vista info on my other drive. My question is if the old Windows Mail messages are there specifically what folder do they reside in either of the two (or both) locations, and how do I get them into my Live Mail history.
Seems like there should be a way to do this, but it is not as simple as the canned instructions for importing e-mail.
Thanks for any help because I sure would like to obtain this history.

Hi and welcome

I am not going to be a lot of help given I have never used windows mail, but if you known the extension for windows mail messages counldn't you use search to find them in either the windows.old or on the other dirve?

I am sure someone will have the answer just not me on this one sorry
