    BCM - restore default settings

    Is there any update to the field label issue? Between Office 2013 H&B installation fiasco, going back to Office 2010 to learn my 2013 BCM Dbase is not compatible and then going back to Office 2013 Pro Plus and it's myriad of updates, one or some resulting in screwing up BCM I'm very frustrated...

    Is it possible to go from BCM Office 13 back to BCM Office 2010?

    After dealing with Microsoft for WAAAY too many hours and still not getting Office 2013 installed correctly (due to the goofy streaming download POS) I have decided to go back to Office 2010. However all my BCM was done in Office 13 (I know this doesn't make sense but work with me...) Is...

    Will BCM work with any Office 2013?

    I have been trialing Office 2013 Professional Plus. Now that its time to purchase I'm wondering if I can go with the "Home & Business" version and still be able to install/run BCM. I don't need all the pieces of Pro Plus and it's significantly more expensive. TIA Michael

    What is BCM written in?

    Great! Only in replies to me... Kinda sounds like the way Outlook/bcm is (not) working for me today. Following un-installing a few of the various updates are listed in the other thread regarding the bad BCM behaviors, everything in BCM stopped working for me. i.e. anything I clicked on would...

    BCM - restore default settings

    I have my preferences set to NOT install updates without my intervention. I would certainly hope that MS has not decided to override that preference. Is there something going on I'm aware of? i.e. MS has not brought to my attention?

    I'm experiencing a similar behavior in that whether I can no longer select the "Business" phone number whether in an existing contact or lead record or in a new contact or lead record. i.e. Opening an existing record shows the phone number that was in the "Business" filed but is now showing with...

    x86 vs. x64 Sql Server 08 Dbase Questions

    What, if any, are the advantages of running Sql Server 08 x64 over x86? Will a BCM dbase created with x86 Sql Server 08 open or restore to x64 dbase? Does the version of Office 13 (x86 vs. x64) one is using determine which version of Sql Server 08 one uses for BCM? TIA Michael

    I need to do a re-install of Windows 7 OS. This will be a completely clean install on newly formatted clean partition. With that in mind what are best practices relative to BCM.

    Outlook 2013 not holding bottom navigation settings

    I have done the "reset" thing until I was blue in the face and it did nothing to resolve the issue. So every time I open Outlook I have to clip on the 3 dots and modify the nav options so that BCM will show. Frankly I find this kind of engineering (or such I say "lack of engineering") on MS's...
