import wab file to Thunderbird prob

Hi Friends,
I've been trying Mozilla Thunderbird instead of Outlook Express and have been impressed - apart from trying to import the email address book from OE. The rest of the installation was smooth and easy but this didn't happen. It said that the address book couldn't be found. My fault by letting someone else mess with the pc! I did find the .wab address book eventually, but in trying to open it, I was told 'the address book has been locked by another application. Please close the application and try later. How can I unlock this or, as OE seems to be messed around, can I re-install it to free it? But where could I download a fresh copy from? Also, if I release the wab file, where do I place it in the Thunderbird file in the application data file in Documents and settings folder if I manually import it? I ue Windows XP Professional.
Thanks in advance,

Try to copy your OE address book to floppy then import to Tbird. Open Tbird/tools/import.

Thanks for the reply Ashdav. I did as you suggested and put the file on a flash drive but the Thunderbird import didn't find it.The file still says its locked by another application when I tried opening it from the flash drive.
