Maybe installing whatsapp on a new phone and connecting it to your old phone number should work. If a backup is present on SDCARD/Whatsapp/databases, then you should be asked in the last step of the install procedure if you want to restore the old messages in the backup.
Currently, there is no way to decrypt the db.crypt files without using Whatsapp itself. However if you already have whatsapp installed, you can extract the stored messages in plaintext and show them on the PC using the
