Upgraded to Vista from XP and now can't use BCM...Help!!!???



  • 1. where is BCM?????
    I have recently installed Office Professional 2007. Tried to utilize BCM today - it isn't there. How to obtain/access it?
  • 2. Can I use BCM (2007) simultaneously with a version of Access 93?
    We are looking to upgrade our Outlook to Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager on our Small Business Exchange Server. Currently however, we are using a database for our accounting and inventory work that is a heavily manipulated version of Access 93 called CanCom. We will be changing this software in the near future, and I don't need the two to integrate, but we want to make sure because they are both Microsoft databases that they will not interfere with one another and can run simultaneously on the same computer. I don't know if anyone else has possibly encountered a similar issue, or if you know how the two systems work, I just want to make sure that using both programs will not cause a crash. Thanks, Rachel
  • 3. Accidental deletion of SQL files
    Whilst trying to make more space on my hard drive I accidentally removed the SQL programme. Now each time I go into Outlook it is delayed by messages searching for the database. How can I reinstall it and/or get rid of the messages appearing. thanks

    I need to assign a primary contact to an account but the field you mark to assign it has disappeared and the colums now read - job title business phone and email. Any suggestions welcomed!
  • 5. BCM 2007 integrated with Office Accounting 2008
    First off, I have a dedicated XP Pro machine on my network that runs the database server SQL Express. * I first integrated OA2008 and BCM2007 without a problem. * Then I downloaded and installed Microsoft BCM Database Administrator and installed it on the XP machine (server) * Then I backed up the integrated database and restored it on the server * Finally I set up my user accounts on the server for the database administrator and connected without a hitch So, here is the problem. When in a project task, I'd like to create a timesheet entry and then submit it to OA2008. When I select to create a time sheet, all I get is a message stating that BCM cannot access the accounting records. This message is give when doing timesheets, converting a quote to an invoice and when getting the financial history of a client. Other than that, everything is working fine. Is there something I don't have set right or is this a limitation of of using a remote database? Thanks

My XP desktop crashed, and we purchased a new computer which runs
Vista.  For some reason, Outlook 2003 Professional Edition will run
fine, but will not acknowledge the BCM database.  Help????

I'm not sure what you mean by acknowledge, but you need BCM v2 Service
Pack 4 on Vista because the earlier version used Sql Server 2000,
which is not supported on Vista. SP4 installs Sql 2005 and addresses
various Vista permissions issues.

1.Sync'g BCM 2007(XP) and BCM(Vista) PC's using Mobile device

I have installed BCM for Outlook 2007 on one PC running XP and onto another 
running Vista.  I have also installed the add-in onto my Windows Mobile 6 
phone for BCM mobile.  Everything onthe XP side works fine..when I sync..I 
see the changes made to either the PC or phone.  The problem is when I try to 
sync with the Vista PC only the standard Outlook files are sync'd, not the 
BCM contact info.  I have tried all of the settings in Windows Mobile Device 
Center but it does not recognize the BCM contents of the mobile device.  
Anyone have any suggestions?


2.Please help - Can't upgrade or uninstall Office XP Professional

I can't uninstall Office XP Professional.  During the process it stops
with the following error:

"Error 1326. Error getting file security: C:\Program Files\Microsoft
Office\GetLastError: 5"

I actually first got a version of this error while trying to upgrade
to Office 2003, so I decided to uninstall Office XP.  I can't upgrade
or uninstall Office 2003.  I can't find anything on "Error 1326" and
"Office 2003."  Uninstalling in safe mode doesn't work.  I've also
tried turning off Norton.

Any assistance is appreciated!


3.Cannot update BCM 2007 database after Vista upgrade...

After upgrading from Win XP PRO SP2 to Vista Ultimate, cannot restore BCM 2007
database.  Error message says "Cannot restore this database because you were 
not authorized to back up or restore databases when this one was originally 
backed up.  For more information, contact the database owner or the system 
administrator for more information".

Drag and drop individual contacts, copied to a seperate file before upgrade, 
does not work either.  Error message says "Cannot copy the items.  Business 
Contact Manager for Outlook cannot save this Business Contact, as it has an 
invalid value Assigned To User.  Either set a valid value, or create a new 
Business Contact record to store the information". 

I have several hundred contacts and supporting information in this data 
base.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks...

4.Problem backing up BCM 2007 since upgraded to vista

I recieve the error message "Operating System error 5 (Access Denied)" when I 
try to back up BCM since upgrading to Vista.  Is there a solution?

5.Can not restore 2003 BCM with Vista Upgrade

I just upgraded my Lap Top to Vista. I have BCM 2003 SP3. I have historically 
backed up my BCM on my desck top and restored it on my laptop so I have 
current data. Now I get an error saying that I can not recreate because I am 
not the the user who created the backup. I read the blog from Mukesh. As 
Administrator I am able to restore the data and everything works fine. Then I 
exit out of BCM and when I get the error BCM for outlook DB can not be 
loaded. This cannot be completed because BCM can not access the DB. It then 
lists the BCM file it can not open. It points to where the file resides but 
when I try to change the configuration it does not even see the files. When I 
go back as administrator it all works again. 

One other dumb question? If I am listed as Administrator under my user name 
(I am the only user on the machine) why do I have to launch as administrator? 
Arn't they the same if they both have full rights?

Thanks for any help.
