Cannot Run From SQL Server Express Error in BCM for Outlook
I have installed Small Business Server 2010 (64 bit) and Office Professional Plus 2010 (64 bit) on a new server. My issue is that I have problems installing Business Contact Manager 2010 (64 bit) on the same server. While rebooting the server after the initial installation the installation menu of Business Contact Manager reappeared on the screen. I checked the Control Panel and realized the program was not installed, but SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 were listed twice in the program list. When I attempted to install Business Contact Manager for the second time I received this message in German:
Business Contact Manager für Microsoft Outlook 2010
Das Installationsprogramm für Business Contact Manager für Microsoft Outlook 2010 kann kein Upgrade der installierten Version von SQL Server Express auf SQL Server Express 2008 durchführen. Entfernen Sie die installierte Version von SQL Server Express, bevor Sie Business Contact Manager installieren.
The installation of BCM for MS Outlook 2010 cannot run an upgrade from SQL Server Express to SQL Server Express 2008. Delete the installed version of SQL Server Express before you start with the installation of BCM
To try to solve this problem I followed the Knowledge Base article at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/troubleshoot-installing-business-contact-manager-for-outlook-2010-sql-server-2008-express-HP010262565.aspx and made sure that the Windows was up-to-date by using Windows Update. I have uninstalled SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 and attempted to install once again Business Contact Manager. The Business Contact Manager log file doesn’t show any errors. I am still unable to install Business Contact Manager. There are no registry entries of the program either.
Does anyone know how I can install this program?
