Business Contact Manager 2003 is incompatible with Windows 7
 
After trying for number of times to install the Business Contact Manager 2003 on Windows 7, I was not succeeded in installing it. :no: So thought that you guys would know something more about it. I have used Business Contact Manager 2003 with Windows XP, and I didn't face any problems with it. I want to know that is Business Contact Manager 2003 is incompatible with Windows 7? If there is any trick to run BCM 2003 on Windows 7, please let me know that. I am expecting some quick responses from your side. :notworthy

The official website of Microsoft software compatibility in Windows 7 states that does not support the 2003 version, only the 2007 and 2010. The only alternative procedure to make it work properly on this operating system, is to install the 2007 and 2010 version. Even many times you can observe the compatibility issues of Microsoft Office 2003 with the Windows 7. So, the only way for you is to get the new version.

It is obvious from all my observations (here & all over the web) that Office 2003 is NOT fully compatible with Windows 7. Please advise when MS will offer a patch. I'm really disturbed that I purchased this software previous year & now I can't utilize it (Access, Publisher). I upgraded to Windows 7 on 2 new machines, which are entirely optimized, tuned up etc. (1 64-bit & 1 32-bit; both clean installs). Tried to install Office Professional Edition 2003 on mutually machines & got the identical error. First, a discussion advises. ?This program has known compatibility problems" (related to business contact manager), that is a tip-off right there.

Have you tried to update Outlook 2003? Updating Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager comprises the following enhanced functionality:
  • Sharing customer information and sales chances
  • Customer data synchronization with Pocket PC based on Microsoft Windows Mobile (available as a detach download for chosen languages)
  • Compatibility with Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003, Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2003 hosted
  • Integration with Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting 2006
