I was running BCM 2007 with Office Professional 2007. I downloaded the 2010

Professional Plus Beta and do not have access to Business Contact Manager. I

get a message when I try to load the add in com that the version is not

correct. The Beta software did not uninstall BCM 2007? What do I need to do?

Well if the beta didnt include BCM, uninstall the beta and go back to 2007

Um. That is so untrue, DL.

BCM 2010 Beta is available for download, but it is a "separate"

download from the Office 2010 Beta! (A lot of people didn't know

that...)

Download the BCM 2010 Beta from Microsoft website and try it out. I

especially like the new level of customization that they've allowed

you to do this time! :)

Hope that helps,

John

* oh, do remember to back up your BCM data (either do full database

back-up or do an export) before you install the new 2010 Beta. Just

in case anything goes wrong, you won't be losing anything.

To do a back up of your BCM 2007 data, you'll have to have Office 2007

+ BCM 2007 running... This is for those of you who haven't tried the

upgrade and want to give it a try. :\

okay,..so i uploaded the beta 2010 outlook as well as the business contact

manager, unfortunately I didn't back up the bcm database beforehand. I

expected the beta would automatically pull the file in like it did my outlook

contacts. Now, I'm stuck,...I have no idea how to get my old bcm contacts and

accounts in to the new beta,...and it's too late to go backwards. I tried

finding the original 2007 file,...but the closest I could find is a very

large .mdf file. help.

mahawks,

Is there any error message shown? What happens when you launch

Outlook/BCM and ask BCM to connect to your local database? It should

find it automatically (under your "%localappdata%\Microsoft\Business

Contact Manager" folder if you are on Vista or Win7) and prompt you

for data migration.

A second thing to try, if you are on Vista or Win7, is to launch

Outlook.exe process as an administrator. By elevating the Outlook

process, you are gaining some extra privileges with SQL, which can

resolve a number of database attachment issues.

Then if the step above did not work, there is always the very last

resort of uninstalling Office/BCM 2010 Beta and re-installing its 2007

counterparts. This will take some time but you can get your vital

data backed up / exported that way. Then try Office/BCM 2010 again.
