  • 1. Outlook BCM performance?
    All, I am using BCM --- I like the tool but the performance is very poor. Any ideas on how to improve the speed? Thank You, Lou XXXX@XXXXX.COM

cann't upgrade my office SME (Including outlook with BCM)

Postby TW9zaGU » Tue, 20 Jan 2009 18:43:01 GMT

I am trying to upgrade my office SME (Including outlook with BCM) from 2003 
to 2007, it won't install BCM - 
The steps performed:  
 1.           I have first installed the trail version over the 2003 and 
have it work without upgrading outlook to 2007 (remained 2003 with BCM) 
Office 2007 worked fine.  
 2.           Once I decided to have a full move, I have downloaded my Open 
licensed install files and installed them over the version I had. Then I 
removed outlook 2003 and installed Outlook 2007. The next step was to install 

the message I received:
"Setup failed to install Business Contact Manager for outlook 2007. See 
c:/?../MBSsetuptmpe3A5.log for more details?
The following is the log file:

I have repeated this attempt several times.  
Whenever I?m trying to remove the BCM (uninstall) I receive the following 
?Setup failed to remove the following product: Business Contact Manager for 
Outlook 2007?  
The product that I have installed is:  
And the BCM version is:  
I'm struggling with this issue for several weeks and it hurts my business.  
Please help ASAP.

2.Upgrading MS Office 2003 SME with MS Office 2003 Pro Upgrade Disk

I bought an Office 2003 Pro upgrade disk a couple of years back.  A new user 
has just started at the company with a Vista Business laptop running Office 
2003 SME.  I have both disks and packages and licence keys.  Yet the Upgrade 
will not recognise the SME version.  (it won't even recognise an Office 97 
Pro disk for that matter) and throws and error before aborting.

Can anyone advise if this is a function of Vista Business, or Office SME.  
For the record all my other users were upgraded from Office 97 Pro to 2003 
pro via the same method without hitch (on XP pro).  I have downloaded Office 
2003 SP3 in readiness, assuming I can get the soft3ware to upgrade in the 
first place.
Any thoughts, please?

4.Upgrade Office 2K to include Outlook 2003

I have a central install point for Office 2000 which I set up with the
custom installation wizard.  I now want to upgrade Outlook to 2003 and I
can't figure out how to get that done.  I can use a wizard again to create
an mst for the Outlook msi, but it doesn't ask me for a license key during
that process and the end user ends up being asked for it.  How do I avoid

Is it possible to recreate the Office 2000 setup, but to include the
information in the Outlook msi... but with the license key?  Or some other

Thanks for any suggestions?
