Windows 7: exporting WLM data

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
exporting WLM data

Does anyone know how I'd export my all my accounts, messages, contacts etc from WLM to Mozilla Thunderbird please? It seems to give an option for the late lamented Outlook Express, but none for Windows Live Mail. Any help greatly appreciated.

I'm curious about what gets exported to a 'pst' file when I click on "Personal" and combine it with the instruction to incorporate sub-folders. Is 'archive' a sub-folder? Do the archived emails require an independent export like the ones given to the 'Personal'?

I would like to be able to export a summary of all the metadata of my music library. I know that past versions of WMP had a powertoy for that, but I was unable to find one for version 12. Does anybody know a way to do this? Also, where is the library file located anyway? Thanks.
