Yes, I tried this, but it did not work. From File - Import - Messages... I get the dialog box showing the applications to import from. I select Microsoft Outlook and click Next but nothing happens, all I can do is cancel to get out of the wizard.

Outlook Express and Outlook (any version) are not the same, as each uses an entirely different message format; please see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outlook_Express.

Import does not work on this version right now, i'd suggest importing mails on xp machine (temporarily) and then copy entire Outlook express folder (with imported mails) from xp to 7. That folder path can be found from Tools> options> Maintenance>Store Folder.
Another way to copy mails from xp to 7 is Outlook Express Backup-Restore Tool from tools and addons section on our forum.
