How set default vCard viewer?

This could be a WindowsXP-pro question or Outlook2002 question, unsure. A
small window popped up entitled "Address Book" and the message was "Address
Book is currently not your default vCard viewer. Would you like to make it
your default vCard viewer? [Yes]  [No]

How do you (manually) get to the place in WindowsXP-pro or somewhere else
like in Outlook where you specify the default vCard viewer, I can't find
anywhere.  Also, is vCard viewer related to a .vcf file?  Thanks

Use "Open with" on a VCF file and specify OLExpress.  Select YES to make it the
