Recovering Data From BCM 2007

Frankly, I've had it with BCM... this is the third time it has mysteriously
stopped working. My set up is not all that complicated and I do nothing
particularly fancy. This time it just quit and I've spent DAYS on trying to
get it working. The program shows up in Control Panel (SP2)... but it just
won't open. Attempts to uninstall and reinstall are fruitless and I've tried
every suggestion I've found. The installation Wizard just quits. Or I'll get
to the point of selecting a new or existing DB and the program freezes when I
try to either.

The DB file(s) of contacts does, in fact exist--I can find it using
Explorer. I want my data... I'd be thrilled to be able to import it into an
Outlook and use it as a simple contact file... or even get it open as a
spreadsheet... I don't care if I ever see BCM again.

Any suggestions will be appreciated... please not the standard ones because
I'm sure I've tried all of those -- some more than once.

Have you tried running BCM as admin?

Also try deleting the Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft
\Business Solutions eCRM, and then run Outlook again.
