Hi

I have just recently installed Windows 7 on a spare hard disk drive

with Outlook /BCM / SQL 2005 Express and we connect to a remote SQL

database on the SBS server in our network.

It struck me that the Windows 7 seems to run Outlook & BCM combo way

way better than on Windows XP Pro. We had Outlook 2003 but got enticed

into going with office 2007 office suite's BCM. I don't know if anyone

would agree with me but I'd love to hear other peoples opinions here.

I know I've never been able to consistently get Outlook/BCM 2007 to

work with XP Pro. It seems to me that we may be all better off?

Any thoughts?

JM

Win7 seems to run a lot of stuff better, so it doesn't come as a surprise to

me.

Windows XP is, after all, goig on 10 years old. I would expect any newer

operating system to work better with new programs than one designed 10 years

ago.

I've been forced to have two hard disk drives as I slowly migrate to

Windows 7. Even in a simple network with Small Business Server 2003

(which maintains security etc.,) The ramifications of changing over

from one OS to another is a lot of work and testing to see if stuff

works. I've been able to get Outlook 2007 to work in WAN environment

knowing however that Outlook is a LAN area application. With BCM stuck

on top of Windows 7 even BCM can remotely connect to SQL database and

download across a small WAN connection and sync up our shared

database. Why on earth didn't MrSoftee get this stuff figured out

years ago? Oh gawd help us all!
