Default Can't import Outlook Express into Outlook 2007

Here's the situation. user going from Outlook Express in XP [32-bit] SP3 to
Outlook 2007 SP2 in Windows 7 64-bit.

The old Outlook Express files [.dbx, etc.] are in a folder. When I try to
import the messages into Outlook 2007, I specify import mail, choosing OE/WLM
but it detects the never used WLM account [I thought it didn't come with win7
but it did pick up the dummy "Welcome to WLM" message]. It at no time asks to
choose a folder or anything.

Data was taken from a backup. Original computer was stolen.

I know of a long way but is there anything faster?

You have to make your OE msg store available to WLM, before in WLM exporting
to Exchange (outlook)
Outlook doesnt know anything about WLM, only OExpress

I have a copy of all dbx-files from my Outlook Express. Now I have formated
my PC and installed Windows7.
With Windows7 I cant install Outlook Express.
How can I import my dbx-files to Ourlook 2007?
