    Hi I need some advise.

    I have freshly installed Win10Pro + Office pro 2016 with the help of this forum members here. Really appreciate.

    I've been using Outlook 2013 in Win 8 on other partition.

    I wanted to backup my old Outlook 2013 account settings and restore them into Outlook2016 because I have 7-8 email accounts. I did the registry backup from outlook /15/profile/outlook .

    But in Outlook 2016 the profile registry is located in outlook/16/profile/outlook.

    If I click the backed up registry in win10 , the registry installed in wrong directory outlook/15/profile/outlook
    That is why my Outlook2016 cannot see the restored accounts.

    How can I change or transfer the registry to the original directory outlook/16/profile/outlook?

    Please some one if can assist me.

    Million thanks

    Why not just edit the .REG file in Notepad and change all outlook/15 to outlook/16 (using search and replace) before importing it?
