Answer
Do NOT copy the file to the default location! Doing so may well overwrite an existing file of the same name and this will corrupt your Outlook profile.  Copy it to ANY other folder on your hard drive, make sure you've removed the READ ONLY attribute the file acquired when you copied it to a CD, then proceed as above, open it using 'File|Open|Outlook Data File'.
