Change to Disable Updates
Is there any reason you did not mention this one, which is obviously easier?
The answer was simple. It always is!!
I had installed the Business version of Office. I have a licence for the Small Business Version!
Deleted the incorrect one and used this link to install the correct one...
I can confirm that it has installed Office 2013 which is brilliant.
However, when it asks me to activate it tells me:
Your product isn't installed.

I transferred 15,000 customers to BCM and moved over from Maximizer CRM. I integrated BCM into our small business and works superbly.
Just updated to 365, 2016 without thinking and found it was not compatible.
Now we have confirmation that...
I think that what Paul is asking is how to 'merge' two databases.
My database of 15,000 customers is too large to 'experiment' with. Not sure if anyone else can confirm or carry out a test?
Thanks for the heads up, but I am confused!
The update is dated the 7th November 2014.
I installed BCM several weeks ago and already have version 4.00.12006.00 that your link takes you to!
I have the problem with labels.
Has anyone installed from this link and if so does it solve the...
Using either method is the data also stored locally!
For example, if you moved away from your internet connection, would you still see all the contact information. Which would refresh as soon as you connected to the internet?
