Hi there - Yes, you are correct the Windows Address Book is not included in Windows 7. Instead of the address book, Windows recommends using The People Page from WindowsLive. It is an online address book that you can access from any computer with an internet connection. There are a lot of cool features of The People Page including automatic updates of your contacts. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/looking-for-windows-address-book
However, if The People Page is not for you, you can install an address book program from another company.
I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. I absolutely love the new OS, but have one grip, Why did Microsoft stop using the Address Book in wab. file? I used this program almost daily and really really liked it.
After spending days looking for one similar to the old address book, I am stuck with the exported file of all of my business contacts. Seems all of the other AB on the market use a different file system. I have read that if I would have installed 7 differently, I could have saved it, but that is a dead issue now.
Is there any way to use one of the old windows disc's to install this AD back onto my computer? If there is, I have not heard of it. Most of the AB online either are not what I am looking for, or they charge an arm and a leg for it and then want more for the next update. Does anyone have any suggestions????
Why Microsoft did away with it is beyond me. I never once had a problem with it and know of none either. This is a bummer and has cost me a bunch of time searching for another one.
