I have installed 2007 Prof Plus, but that does not include BCM. Is there a

way I can download/purchase just BCM or do I need to buy Outlook 2007 w/BCM?

Thanks!

Do you have the retail package or was it a download?

BCM is a separate download and is on a separate CD.

Note that office.microsoft.com is down for me at the moment, so if this

does not work try again later.

Office 2007 Professional Plus is a VL version and can be purchased through the HUP

and you are not able to download it. The OP will need to purchase BCM separately

That does not make sense. Microsoft does not reduce licensed feature set

for its volume customers and then labels it Plus.

I distinctly remember downloading Office Professional Plus 2007 with

BCM. I know that it's included with the Office 2007 Professional SKU.

I don't remember why BCM is not included with the Professional Plus SKU.

Last I remember from years ago it was an oversight that never got corrected.

I definitely have been gone too long. ;)

I happen to be intimately familiar with Microsoft volume licensing and

no stranger to reading the PUR document.

OK, so let's set this record straight once and for all.

As per Eric Ligman, who is empowered to interpret Microsoft volume

license policies, at

http://blogs.msdn.com/mssmallbiz/ar...vailability-for-volume-license-customers.aspx

( http://bit.ly/b9GkAk )

Volume license customers *CAN* download Office Outlook 2007 with

Business Contact Manager without purchasing any other SKUs.

Volume license SKUs include Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 and

Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007.

Microsoft's reasoning for not making this download more visible is:

*"Note: Because Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager was

not designed for adoption by larger SA and EA customers, the Office

Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manger[sic] download has not been

added to the Office Professional Plus 2007 and Office Enterprise 2007

download pages."*

Now, as per that article customers can receive the product through:

MVLS, eOpen, or *by requesting bits from their reseller*.

If you do not have access to either eOpen (since migrated to VLSC) or

MVLS sites, you may request these bits from a reseller. There is an easy

way to get these bits directly from Microsoft at any time, but I decline

to post it so as to not tempt users of "Home and Student", "Basic", and

"Standard" SKUs.

Just point your volume license contact to that article, and you'll get

your bits.

Welcome to the world of BCM. :)

As you said "Welcome to the world of BCM." and who knows what is further down the

line with policies that are implemented on the fly
