The "MAPI Client" referred to in that error message is Outlook; the message
is saying Outlook is not installed. Outlook must be installed because it
(the MAPI client) is the only application able to open and manipulate a .PST
file. Installing and setting up Outlook 2007 (creating an Outlook profile
and attaching the old .PST file to it) should have made this error go away.
Not knowing the details of how you setup Outlook 2007 and attached the .PST
file to it, I would guess that either your Vista system is unhappy with how
Outlook was installed, or Outlook isn't setup properly.
