Importing BCM 2003 backup in another language in B2TR and Outlook 2007 with BCM

Postby » Thu, 05 Oct 2006 23:02:32 GMT

I once downloaded the whole Office 2007.
With BCM it went completely wrong.
It as not possible to import the backup of BCM 2003 into Outlook 2007,
'Sorry, wrong language' the error message was. (BCM 2007 did not
convert my BCM 2003 database automatically). And so I had to end Office
2007, reinstall Outlook 2003 and BCM 2003, which took about an hour.
Now there is the Technical Refresh. Will I now be able to import the
Dutch BCM 2003 backup? Or will the conversion of BCM 2003 to BCM 2007
succeed during installation? Is there anyone having positive

In the general case, databases in different locales are going to be

In some cases they will work (because collation orders, character sets,
currency symbols etc., are the same between two locales) or you can
make them work by tweaking some variables, but I doubt Microsoft will
support multiple locales with BCM.

It should be possible to export/reimport instead of backup/restore.

Consider that approach. I have a test environment with every iteration of 
BCM if you run out of options.

1.Language problem with Importing the BCM 2003 database into bcm 200

I've installed bcm 2007 (office 2007 enterprice nl) and I'm trying to import

How can I work around this in order to get all my data from the backup into

3.BCM 2007 B2TR Backup/Restore

This question seems to have been asked but never adequately answered so
perhaps I give it another  try.

My environment is Vista RC1 running Outlook/BCM 2007 B2TR at home and
Windows XP SP2 running Outlook/BCM 2007 B2TR at the office. I'm trying
to backup my extensive BCM DB using the BCM BACKUP/RESTORE dialog
provided within BCM/database tools.
To clarify before we get start, in my Vista installation there are only
two account, one is the built-in Admin account which I've enabled and
the second is my personal account which supposedly has admin
privileges. Of course this is not true because we all know that MS
didn't make "user admin" accounts exactly equal with the built-in
"Admin" account in Vista. And herein lies the problem which is as

I've been trying to restore a backup copy of my Office 2007 BCM B2TR db
from my office machine (the XP one listed above) to a new installation
of BCM B2TR on my Vista machine at home under my user account. It fails
with the following error message;

"Cannot restore this database because you were not authorized to
backup or restore this databases when this one was originally backed
up. For more information, please contact the database owner of the
systems administrator for more information. Your local database was
not changed."

When I logon as the built-in Admin on the same Vista machine at home
the database can be restored without any problem.

This administrative/user privilege #@&* really sucks but I would
greatly appreciated it if someone knows if there's a proper procedure
for this!!!!!!!!!

4.BCM-V2 (Outlook 2003 BCM SP3) TO BCM-V3 (Outlook 2007) Migration

I've got a two backups from my BCM-V2 SP3 installation :
A) Completed Export to BCM (From Outlook 2003)
B) Database Backup From MSSQL 2003 (Express Ed, or Whatever)

I Did a clean install (on Another WorkStation) of Office 2007, then install 
Outlook BCM-V3 (Witch install MSSQL Express Ed 2005, and creates an empty 

I've follow two differents steps to try to make the migration :
A) Import BCM File (From my previous exported BCM (Outlook 2003)).
ERROR : Something like "Outlook can't make the last action", and nothing 
append, another thing is that, I must kill outlook process to get rid of that 
pop-up (Cancel and BACK buttons doesn't work)
B) Restore Database into MSSQL Express 2005:
It seams that this last step is the right one, but, when the process is in 
the middle of the migration, it stops, and shows a pop-up with something like 
"You're not allowed to restore database, plese contact the owner (my self) of 
the database, before restore" (This is not the exactly msg, but the meaning 
is the same)

My last chance, is to backup database, with password, and try to restore 
again, and see what append. No other clue for me, any help ??
