Can't import Outlook.pst file into Windows mail?

I get an error "Messages cannot be imported from the MAPI client."... nice.
I'm trying to import messages from an Outlook XP .pst file to Windows Mail on
Vista Home Premium. What's up?

Windows Mail cannot import a .pst file unless Outlook is installed on the
Vista computer.

You can install Outlook, copy the .pst to the Vista computer, open the .pst
with Outlook, then you can import into Windows Mail.

Or,
If you have Outlook installed on an XP computer, import the .pst data into
Outlook Express, copy the .dbx files and .wab file to the Vista computer,
and import into Windows Mail.

I just decided to use my Outlook XP on my Vista Home Premium computer. It
doesn't seem to be causing any problems and I like it much better than
Windows Mail.
