Help!

I have a client who deleted the Business Contact Manager from Outlook 2007 (in order to speed up the computer), not realizing that ALL 800 of her contacts were in the SQL Express 2005 database. Now she can't contact her clients. She neglected to export her files to the .BCM format, so I have the files still in the SQL .MDF & .LDF format.

She also uninstalled SQL Express 2005. I at least need to pull the contact information out of these files, but I'd like to get BCM working again.

I tried re-installing SQL Express 2005, but it won't come up.

In desperation, I set up virtual PC with XP Pro using virutal PC 2007 in order to setup a "clean version" of XP w/o leftover ____ from the SQL Express & BCM un-install. Still no luck.

Any ideas?

Victor

Thank you Guruprasad Ra.

Now, how do I access the information contained in the SQL .MDF & .LDF files. I already gotten BCM to work with an empty contact list by doing the clean install in the Virtual XP Pro session. I tried to rename the new MSSMLBIZ sql files to NEWMSSMLBIZ, and copying the old MSSMLBIZ sql files into the same directory, and that did not work.

What is the version of Service pack installed for Office, BCM and SQL Express 2005 ?

In the virtual machine, I just did the basic install of MS Office Pro. No service Packs.

Outlook About says 12.04518.1014, and BCM is Ver 3.00.5828.00.

I am in the same situation- i did not use the restore function, but I backed up the files. How do I get those linked up to my new install of bcm? I had to wipe my hard drive.
