    Hi: I'm trying to use Outlook to be my report of assistance to work. I was trying to do a form that could not be modify and will be sent only to one user (Not Reply to all neither foward). The format should be available for all office users and easy to find and must have something that make me sure that is a reliable source of date and hour. It was impossible for me us the macro or format from Outlook (to complicated, I think it requiers programming). If there's any form to do that I would love to know.

  • 5. Cannot locate/install Business Contact Manager -MSO2003Pro
    I have received (promotional) from Microsoft a licensed, full version of MS Office Professional 2003. Also included in the promotional CD package was One Note. Both CDs are full versions and were accompanied by Product Keys. I have installed the products "Completely" to run from my computer...leaving no options to install at first run. My issue:I did not Receive a Business Contact Manager CD in my packet. I contacted Microsoft Order Desk , Pre-Sales, and Support...They cannot send me a CD...due to the fact that my software was a free promotional mailing...prior to the release. Where can I go to get the BCM CD? as I understand it...MS Office 2003 Professional now INCLUDES the Business Contact Manager. Thanks for any help you can offer... Ken Loder Salt Lake City, UT

BCM 2007 Shared Database on member Server 2008 in SBS 2008 Domain

Postby Andrew » Thu, 21 Jan 2010 23:54:58 GMT

We have recently upgraded our servers to 2008. Small Business Server 2008 with Windows Server 2008 (32) as a member server. The member server is running Sql 2005 Standard and Sql 2008 Standard. Clients are all running Windows 7.

I am currently having issues with a shared BCM 2007 database on this member server. All was working perfectly before the upgrades. I created a new database with BCM database tool. I then restored a backup tacken from the old 2003 server. I then shared the database with the tool adding the users.

All works 100% for all users who are network administrators (even if they were NOT included in the databse share!?). However, users who are standard users cannot connect to the shared database. The error message says "Cannot find BCM database on computer".

I tried logging into the same PC with different user names. It only work for the administrators. I could make all users in my domain administrators and then they can connect but I feel this should not be neccessary.

Does anyone have a better idea than making everybody administrators?

I have asked this question on ther forums but no-one seems to have an answer.

I am having the EXACT same issue, down to the T.   We took the same upgrade 
path you did about a month ago and still haven't found the solution.  If I 
figure it out I will let you know.

 Tools Utility, so created a backup and moved the backups to the new server
 I installed the Admin tools onto the new SBS 2008 Server
 I created a new blank database in the default SBS 2008 sql instanc

 From there you have to UNSHARE all the shared users in the Admin tools tha

 no longer valid on the new server even though the usernames might b
 Then RESHARE the new database in admin tools for the domain users on the ne

 Then it allows Server 2008 domain users to access the shared database i

1.BCM 2007 database share problem in Server 2008

I've been trying to share the BCM 2007 contact database installed on a server 
2008 pc with the other pc's in the same network environment.

When I go through the steps in the share database wizard within BCM 2007, it 
denies me access. No idea why, because all lights are on green to share.

I get through the first step: "I want to share my database" and click next. 
Then, in the next step, whether or not I wish to keep my current E-mail 
Auto-Linking settings, after I click next again, it keeps telling me "Access 
is denied."

Anybody any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Kind Regards,

2.BCM Admin Tool on a Windows 2008 x64 Server running SQL 2008

I can't find any documentation that will support this.so I'm just curious as 
to whether anyone has accomplished this before I attempt myself. I'm sure 
there are others out there wondering the same or perhaps may have even 
attempted this. I know I can run the admin tool with SQL 2005 x64. Thanks. 

3.Install BCM on SBS 2008 Standard server

I wish to install Outlook BCM onto a SBS 2008 Standard server.

I have done this before onto a SBS 2003 Server. 

Can you still use the same tools or has there be an update for a 64 bit 
operating system.

4.Cannot seem to use BCM Database Tool on SQL Server 2008

I am trying to install BCM onto a sql 2008 server for shared usage.  The 
server is running Windows 2008 32 bit.

I have an instance "CSSSQL01\MSSMLBIZ" that I installed as a local admin 
account "CSSSQL01\sqlsmlbizadmin"  I can use SSME to connect to this 
instance, using Windows Authentication (logged in as this user).

However, when I use Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007 Database Tool 
to try to Create a New Database, I receive this error message "Cannot 
retrieve the list of SQL Server instance.  Please make sure that SQL Server 
2005 or SQL Server 2005 Express is installed and that the service is 
running."  Clicking OK closes the program.

Any ideas?

I only saw one other thread about this and it ended in August 2008 without 
an answer.

Thank you,
