Vs. 2.2 Notebooks in vs. 7.0?

I have a large archive of Mathematica software written in vs. 2.2 (.MA
and .MB file pairs) that I need to access. I'm now running vs. 7.0
under Windows XP XP3. Whenever I try to open one of these old
notebooks, Mathematica crashes.

Looking at Help, I see that there is supposed to be a function,
"NotebookConvert," in the "Developer Utilities" package, but I cannot
seem to access this function. I do have old copies of vs. 4.1
(apparently the oldest that I bought for personal use -- vs.2.2 was
owned by my employer of long ago) through 6.0.3, but I'd rather not
try installing one of them until I know it's necessary. (Anyhow, vs.
4.1 only says it supports Windows through vs. 2000. Vs. 5.1 is the
first version that mentions XP. I don't know if either of them will
still do the required notebook conversion.)

Does anyone know an efficient way to convert these old notebooks,
preferably en masse?
