Outlook 2007 with BCM Sync with Android?

I am currently using MS Outlooks 2007 with "Business Contact Manager" on an Dell Vostro Laptop running Win XP SP3 and have successfully synchronized with my Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro Phone (HTC Touch Pro 2). I stress the BCM component of Outlook. This allows me to have a seperate database on my phone for my regular Outlook Contact and my Business Contact Manager. Now that my phone is starting to age and needs replacing I havce not found a Smartphone yet that can sync (not transfer) my Outlook with BCM.

Does anyone know of a Smartphone with this capability? I'm willing to upgrade the lap top and OS to accomplish this.

By the way I currently use ActiveSync with my Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro and will consider any Samrtphone that can do what I need, Blackberry, iPhone etc.

Thank you,

Anthony

Hi

A bit of guidance please

We have various forms of outlook at work including outlook 2007 without BCM,
we would like to start using BCM and I wondered if someone could point me to
the most cost-effective way of doing this. For example I'm not aware of an
upgrade from outlook 2007 to outlook 2007 with BCM, is there? as for
previous versions of outlook what's the best plan.

Thanks

I would very much appreciate any help or direction.

I just bought Outlook 2007 with BCM and cannot install it. I get the
following message: "Cannot continue installing Microsoft Outlook 2007 with
Business Contacts Manager because the setup program did not install the
following component: Microsoft Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies."

I have Windows Vista Ultimate with 64-bit operating system.

My Outlook 2007 (with BCM) Crashed when going to 'Tasks'. Can anyone please help with this?

Hi There. I have Outlook 2007 with BCM (part of Office 2007 Pro) running
under Vista Home Premium. One Hotmail account and 3 POP3 mail accounts. All
my mail hierarchy is under "personal folders" - my default store.
Decided as this .PST file was getting very big (over 4Gb) I should archive
most of it - so set up autoarchive etc - midway through archiving got various
out of memory messages. Now get message "Cannot start processing services.
There is not enough free memory to run this program. Quit one or more
programs and then try again".
Only way to clear this problem is to remove the Archive.pst from the
File/Data file Management/Data Files in outlook and restart. Great - I can
now use outlook again but I have a semi-archived message store and no way to
access the messages in the archive.PST (attempting to import this file back
into my primary data store gives the same error message) as does "adding"
this file in its own right.
Surely I am not actually short on memory - 2Gb of RAM (showing on Vista
sidebar gadget as using about 60% and doesn't Vista automatically acquire and
release virtual memory by default anyway?). Not running any other
applications either.
Anyone else seen this problem or got any ideas??
Thanks

Hi,

For some reason when I create an email, Outlook 2007 with BCM is creating a
new task in the To-Do pane. How can I stop this from happening as I've now
got 1000's of tasks.

Also when I try to delete them, some are deleted but many are not. There's
no error message to say why they're not being deleted so I'm at a loss.

Any help would be very much appreciated
Thanks

I am having huge issues with the speed (or lack of speed) with Outlook 2003
with BCM. I am considering installing the new version 2007 with the
technical refresh on my XP Professional box (either that or having a bonfire
with my computer as the centerpiece).

I have a few questions:
1) Can anyone give me an idea if it is a positive step to do the upgrade?
2) Is it faster/slower/same?
3) Is it more stable?
4) Does it work with ActiveSync? and if so, does it do so WELL?
5) Other improvements? Other issues?

Thanks in advance.

I'v just upgraded to Vista Ultimate and Office Pro 2007. All programs in
Office Pro 07 opened up except Outlook 07 with BCM. Trying to open up outlook
I get over lapping warnings; 1st Box - w/ Extension file failed-can not open
, may not exist/have permission or in other program? 2nd box- can not open
default,access denied & does not have permission. Permission settings check

missing in what seems to be so streight foward an applique.?

I am using Outlook 2007 with BCM - I manage rental units that I would like to
schedule as resources. I am the only person who will be scheduling them and I
am not using Exchange Server. Is there a way schedule resources without
Exchange?

Thanks

Hi all. I have office 2007 pro plus, and I also have the cd for outlook
with Business Contact Manager (BCM). I read in the help file that I can
install office pro plus with outlook, then install outlook with BCM in
order to get the outlook in office pro plus to run with BCM. I've done
this procedure, and I've even tried rebooting, then reinstalling BCM but
I still don't have the BCM menu appearing in outlook. However, I do see
the BCMsqlstartupsvc process running in the task manager. What can I do
in order to load the BCM menu into outlook? Thanks!

I can not sync PC outlook 2007 with my cell phone with Windows Mobile 6.1.
Any suggestions pleas??

How do I synchronize outlook 2007 with Dell Axim using Microsoft Active Sync
v4.2?
Getting error message: Support Code: 8503001f
Different profile was prevoisly set up of password protected?
huh?

Outlook 2007 will only sync emails with my mobile devices (htc Touch and iPAQ
1940), not contacts calendar, tasks etc. I have Vista Home Premium

I am installing Office Professsional 2007 with outlook with Business Contact Manager - and BCM doesn't work.

Outlook seems to work - but when I install BCM, Outlook won't run BCM and gives me this error:

"business contact manager failed to load"
"Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation"

Other office programs gave me an error message saying:

BCM Office Addin: Office application
version does not match.

This error message however have disappeared – maybe due to installing update service packs

Before I had office 2000 running on the same computer. The first email in Outlook 2007 says Welcome to Outlook 2000!!! – and not 2007. Could this maybe indicate that the problems are due the fact that the previous Outlook 2000 version has not been removed?

We have a WSS 3.0 site that has been working well until now. Suddenly no-one
in the organisation can sync Outlook (2007) with the team calander on the WSS
site. When we click send/receive in Outlook we get the following error: "Task
'SharePoint' reported error (0x80004005): 'An error occurred either in
Outlook or SharePoint. Contact the SharePoint site administrator.'"
The only suggestions I've found on this are to delete and recreate the
Outlook profile. Well I've actually done a clean reinstall of my PC (for
other reasons: installed Windows 7) and created a new profile and I'm still
getting the error.

Can some-one please offer some suggestions as to where I start
troubleshooting this.

I have outlook 2007 with BCM, and have installed the version for my
smartphone. Frequently, when syncing, I get an error re "unresolved
items", with no hint of how to resolve them.

Error support code 86000108
Clicking "resolve items" just initiates a new sync, with no apparent
effect.

Any ideas?

I recently added Business Contact Manager 2007 to Outlook 2007 and initially
worked. After installing Office Service Pack 2 I received out of memory
errors. If I clicked on a certain folders it would say "could not view
folder, out of memory". I have a current fast dual core, 4 gig of ram and
plenty of hard drive space. All other programs do not experience the
problem. I opened up 20 of them at once with no problems. I am using a shared
database on a server running Server 2003. BCM is set to snyc with the local
SQL server that it installs. If I pull the BCM off, outlook is fine. I have
tried some of the other suggestions, but no luck.. Anyone have an Idea ?

I am looking for the same application, for Outlook 2003 I did install
PocketBCM, but I dont find the same application for Outlook 2007

I'm using Outlook 2007 (part of Office Small Business Edition) on Vista x64
ultimate. It was a clean install, not an upgrade. I copied over all my
Outlook items to a new 2007 PST.

The first time I open an existing calendar item or create a new one, Outlook
takes a minute or two before it opens/creates the item. Once opened its
fine, and other other items opened after that are fine too.

I wondered if this problem is something to do with Business Contact Manager.
I'm not using that yet, but I plan to.

Also, when I save calendar items I frequently get a small bubble message
which I don't understand the meaning of......

! Microsoft Office Outlook X
Cannot save free/busy information.

Other Outlook activities such as email, notes and tasks are fine.
Thanks for help.

I'm having some serious troubles with Outlook's memory usage. This is Outlook
2007, with BCM, and synched to Accounting. Everything is up-to-date.

System:
Vista Business
dual core 3.20 GHz
3 gig RAM

Main PST file is 1.8 GB, archive is 3.56 GB.

Under Active Application Add-ins, the items still listed are:
Business Contact Manager for Outlook
Microsoft Outlook Mobile Service
OneNote Notes bout Outlook Items
PDFMOtlook
Windows Search Email Indexer

Everything else is either inactive or disabled.

I'm having the usual issues of Outlook eating up more and more memory the
longer it runs. I have to restart it at least once a day. I restarted it just
a short while ago, maybe 40 minutes ago, and it's currently at 122,096K of
memory. When I shut it down last, it was at 700,000+ K. It climbs up pretty
steadily once it's running.

I suspect that the key issue is BCM and/or the integration with Accounting?
It seems the most likely culprit, at least. But I'm not entirely sure how to
go testing this. I'm not able to disable BCM through the Trust Center, and I
don't want to lose the data or links with Accounting. But I also am very much
tiring of having to restart Outlook all the time, as well as the lag in
response from Outlook even when it is running.

I have been using OUTLOOK2007 with BCM for more than a year now without any
problem.

Then, all of a sudden, two days ago, it did not want to initialize anymore,
i.e.
* the initial screen appears
* then, before I can access anything, the screen freezes (my PST information
is already onscreen, my other panes are still "loading", and the application
becomes unresponsive.

Looking into CPU usage I observe OUTLOOK to be hogging one complete CPU
(i.e. 50% of my dual). This situation continues indefinitely.

What I did already:
* I performed SCANPST on my PST and my archive PST (no errors)
* I went to a previous version of my BCM database
* I did a "repair" on my Office suite (from the CD)
All to no avail.

Help would be hugely appreciated, as OUTLOOK is my most essential business
vehicle.

Regards
