Hi guys,

I am posting an issue with Microsoft Office 2010 Business Connectivity. This feature is already installed on my computer and I am wondering why, when I do some data collaboration, the system is asking me to install it (see image below)

The Microsoft Office 2010 feature Business Connectivity Services are not installed on this computer

Message from webpage

"The Microsoft Office 2010 feature Business Connectivity Services are not installed on this computer. You can add the feature to you Microsoft Office 2010 installation from Control Panel – Programs – Programs and Features. Contact your administrator for more information."

Looking at the error message above, I am wondering where the business connectivity software is as I don't remember removing it.

Is it possible that it has been removed automatically? Or could my Antivirus application have removed it? Please advise.

Thanks a lot.

The most probable cause is that you have not actually run SharePoint the year 2010 Configuration Magician.

To fix this, make sure that your software is up to date; use Microsoft Windows Revise. Then go to the Microsoft SharePoint 2010's Central Administration page and click on Configuration Wizards. After opening some services, select screen dump. You should not see the error again.
