We're currently running Office 2007, including a shared instance of Business Contact Manager 2007. If we start moving gradually to Office 2010, will our Outlook BCM 2007 and 2010 clients peacefully coexist and work with the shared database?


From my experience so far, they will not work together. There are new fields in the BCM2010 database, and I believe they will break a 2007 BCM connection to the DB. I just finished deploying 2010 to a customer's site, and they are quite happy with it. The move from 2007 to 2010 was smooth, but we upgraded everone's office 2007 to 2010 before performing the BCM update.
