Welcome to Business Contact Manager Team blog. This is our first blog entry. We hope that you will find our future posting interesting and useful.

Over last couple of weeks I read pretty much all the posts on BCM newsgroup and one question came up repeatedly-Where is Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007? I hope to address questions related to getting and installing Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007.

Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007 is not part of Office 2007 installation. It needs to be installed separately after valid Office 2007 SKU is installed. Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007 is available in Microsoft Office 2007 Professional and Microsoft Office 2007 Small Business editions. When it releases to retailers later this month, Business Contact Manager will be available on Office CD2.

You can get a fully functional 60-day trial version of Office 2007 from trial download site http://us1.trymicrosoftoffice.com/default.aspx?culture=en-US. Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007 is available as “Download 2” on the download page of Office 2007 Professional or Office 2007 Small Business Suite. You can download the file and run it after you have installed Office.

If you participated in Office Beta program and installed pre-RTM release of Business Contact Manager, you will need to upgrade it to RTM version whenever you update Office to RTM version. Beta version of Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007 will not function with RTM version of Office.

Please feel free to send your comments if you have questions on getting Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007. We have greatly improved this version from our previous version with several new and exciting features. You can get more information about new version from our product information page at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/contactmanager/FX101674171033.aspx
