Outlook BCM 2003 to BCM 2007 - Lost All Contacts



  • 1. BCM does not load in Windows 7
    I am running a dual boot laptop with Windows XP and Windows 7. BCM in XP is perfect however in Windows 7 it does not load. I had no errors on the install and I am trying to share the same database as the XP one. Is this possible. IF so can anyone tell me how to get it to access the XP database in Outlook 2007 on Windows 7? Thanks
  • 2. BCM Reminders repeatedly appearing
    I'm sure this is a simple case of operator error but I've got a reminder box for ALL my BCM contacts which I can't clear. When I click dismiss all the reminders re-appear acouple of seconds later. I can snooze them, but I can't dismiss them. I've tried >run>outlook.exe/cleanreminders which hasn't worked. We're also using OA if that makes a difference. This is driving me mad! TIA
  • 3. Sync Business Manager with IPhone
    How do I sync my Busniess Manager Contacts and information in Office 2007 with my IPhone?
  • 4. Cannot find any BCM databases on the computer
    We have BCM installed on a few different computers in our office and we have been using a shared database successfullly for a few months now. I added a new user profile on one of the computers today and that profile is unable to connect to our shared BCM database. The message is "Cannot find any Business Contact Manager databases on the computer ..." That same computer continues to connect fine to BCM with another user ID. The problem must be related to the user ID somehow but I can't come up with any ideas on what the problem could be. I used the database tool on the server to grant access to this user and no errors were reported. I have gone back into that tool and this user does show up as having access. Next, I verified this new user is a member of the same groups as other members who are able to connect. Finally - I am able to establish a connection with the database instance: sqlcmd -S "tcp:<ourServer>\mssmlbiz,5356" The error message is not suggesting the user cannot connect to the DB - just that once connected no databases of the "BCM type" are found. One other piece of information is that the database is integrated with Microsoft Office Accounting (which puts many tables into that DB). But - if MOA were the root cause I wonder why the other user ID can still connect from the same machine. Any ideas?

Oh, I'll be around every now and then.  After all, someone needs to provide a
factual reality check to counter the BCM cheerleading spin that sometimes
occurs here.  :)
