SOURCE: BCM Problem ... Lost Contacts

The BCM uninstallation doesn't delete your databases. They should still be on your computer here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application

With either a *.mdf or *.ldf extension. Those are SQL databases which you can get the data off and into a CSV file which you can import into outlook (of course technical expertise is needed) or you could more easily (once the problem with BCM is resolved), make BCM re-recognize the databases by following these instructions:

1. Go into BCM and create a new database. That database needs to match the
name of the .MDF file. So if the MDF file is named "MyBusiness.MDF", create
a new BCM Database with that name

2. Stop the MSSQL$MICROSOFTSMLBIZ Server by going to Start > Run >
services.msc and selecting the MSSQL$MICROSOFTSMLBIZ service
3. Copy the original .mdf & .ldf files over the blank database. They should
be in the following location
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Business Contact Manager

4. Start the Server again (see step 2)
5. Restart BCM and see if you can access your data

which I found here (credit to Larry from the Lockergnome's forums).

If you could write what the error message is I could possibly help you resolve the BCM problem you're having, thereby making it easier for you to view the data on the SQL database files.

SOURCE: Cannot open Outlook 2007

I juts got this problem. Nothing worked, except finding the file (location is in the error message) and trying to rename it. The system told me it was in use.
I was able to find and kill the processes (Excel and a messenger app) using a file unlocker utility.
I have a feeling this would be just as easily resolved by the stadard 'switch it off and switch it back on again.'

How do I rebuild the outlook 2011 for mac email database?


Hi Scott
I am a Mac User also.
Ran my own Mac repair business for 18 years...
I remember this particular problem with Entourage/Outlook for Mac
I stopped using Outlook & Office years ago because it goes corrupt when too many emails are stored in the email data file. About the 1gb file size. A well known problem. I use Apple Mail these days. Note..It will Import emails from Entourage.
All this data is kept in the Microsoft User Data folder inside Documents Folder... if my memory is correct.
Make a backup copy of this folder if you can... before fiddling.
I used a Microsoft Utility Program called "Microsoft Database Utility" to fix and clean up the Email data file. Then Entourage opened up the email again and I got rid of excessive emails containing photos.
I don't even have MS Office installed on this Mac any more but I have located "Microsoft Database Utility" program which is about 2.3mb in size. It's probably inside your MS Office / Office folder already. Use Apple Spotlight to search or... a free program called EasyFind works great.
Open the program and point it to the Microsoft User Data folder where Entourage email data file is located. To locate the actual email data file...Use "Cmd I" to find size of suspect file. The email data file is a Fairly big one.
I am using a 2007 MacBook Pro running OSX 10.9 Maverics with the free "Pages" for reading Word Doc's & "Numbers" for Excel SS and it all works seamlessly. Dont have a need or want to pay for MS Office anymore as it never got many updates anyhow.

Hope this Fixes your Problem
Cheers
Trevor

On Side Subject.... Depending on age of your Mac...You can get Maverics OSX10.9 for free. Download the flu .DMG file. Use CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner from Bombich Software) to do a full Clone Backup of your current Mac HD to another external hard drive before installing new clean OSX 10.9 system then you get asked to Migrate your old system data back and you end up with a new Mac and all your data in place. Get free "MacTracker" to get your specific Mac Specs & what max OS it will go up to.

How Do I re-build Outlook 2011 for mac Database? Re-cuild utility fails at every attempt?


Even if you manage to rebuild your database, you can't import the data into the windows outlook. Although both versions look the same, they use different database structures. just renaming the data file, only will destroy it, when you try to open it.
just Google for outlook data structure 2010 2011 and read what wikipedia has to say on this.
It will take an expert, to help you with this.

Imac4 was OK but now I get an error message telling me to relaunch Outlook but it will not relaunch


First, start up the computer from Disk 1 of your OS installer if you have it and run Utilities/Disk Utility. Click "Repair Disk" and let the program do its work. If you don't have the install disk handy, you can do the job from the command line as follows:
Start up the computer and immediately hold down the option and S keys. Instead of a normal startup, the screen will go black and give you a whole bunch of reports on startup operations in white type. When this is done, you'll see a command line prompt with the primary user's short name. Type fsck -f and hit <return>. The File System ChecKer will begin doing its work. If it comes up with repairs to do, wait until it's finished and run it again. When it reports, "The volume [volumename] appears to be OK." you can restart by typing reboot and <return>.
Try Outlook again. If it still doesn't work, then open the Microsoft Database Utility. The default location is /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office/ (assuming you have Office 2011, you didn't mention any versions of Office or OS). Click the identity of the database you want to rebuild, then click "Rebuild"

Hi All, Can anyone please tell me how to stop Outlook Express from popping up wanting to free up disk space by compressing it EVEN when its not installed. I've had it on numerous computers and it


When messages are deleted in Outlook Express, they are not actually removed from the database containing your email data. Rather, the messages are marked to let Outlook Express know that they can be removed the next time the database is compacted. Compacting the message store is necessary for Outlook Express to maintain a reasonable database and avoid file corruption. Because it is necessary, Outlook Express offers to compact your message store every 100 times the program is used. If you do not compact your message store, the message will continue appearing. Compact the Outlook Express message store manually to remove the message asking if you would like your message store compacted automatically.
Compact the Outlook Express Message Store Manually Launch Outlook Express. Click "File," then click "Work Offline." This disconnects Outlook Express from the Internet temporarily, ensuring that the message store is not in use while you are compacting the database. Note: If you do not want to compact the Outlook Express message store at all, see Section 2. Click "Tools" and then "Options." Click the "Maintenance" tab. Click the "Clean Up Now" button. Click the "Compact" button. This process may take some time depending on when the message store was last compacted. Click "Close" or "OK" to close each window. The offer to compact the Outlook Express message store automatically will no longer be displayed. Click "File" and "Work Offline" to reconnect Outlook Express to the Internet. Compact the message store periodically to prevent the message from being displayed again. Remove the Offer to Compact the Message Store Without Compacting section 2 Press the Windows logo and "R" keys to display the "Run" dialog box. Type "regedit" without quotation marks into the box and press "Enter." This opens the Windows registry editor. Click the plus icons on the left side of the folder tree to navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER," "Identities," "(long string of letters and numbers)," "Software," "Microsoft" and "Outlook Express" folders. Click the "5.0" folder under the "Outlook Express" folder. Find the value named "Compact Check Count" on the right side of the window and double click it. Change the number displayed under "Value data" to "0" and click "OK." Close the registry editor. Outlook Express will not offer to compact your message store again until it has been launched another 100 times. Hope this helps

Entourage chrashes when I delete sent messages


Hi,

If you already rebuilt the Database and still crashing, that means that your Database(Main Identity) is already corrupted and you need to start a fresh database.

Try deleting the messages in your Webmail if you're using IMAP account. Most likely, that message that was stucked in your deleted items folder is causing the issue.

If you have TimeMachine enabled, restore to the date when Entouarge last worked.

BCM Problem ... Lost Contacts


The BCM uninstallation doesn't delete your databases. They should still be on your computer here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application

With either a *.mdf or *.ldf extension. Those are SQL databases which you can get the data off and into a CSV file which you can import into outlook (of course technical expertise is needed) or you could more easily (once the problem with BCM is resolved), make BCM re-recognize the databases by following these instructions:

1. Go into BCM and create a new database. That database needs to match the
name of the .MDF file. So if the MDF file is named "MyBusiness.MDF", create
a new BCM Database with that name

2. Stop the MSSQL$MICROSOFTSMLBIZ Server by going to Start > Run >
services.msc and selecting the MSSQL$MICROSOFTSMLBIZ service
3. Copy the original .mdf & .ldf files over the blank database. They should
be in the following location
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Business Contact Manager

4. Start the Server again (see step 2)
5. Restart BCM and see if you can access your data

which I found here (credit to Larry from the Lockergnome's forums).

If you could write what the error message is I could possibly help you resolve the BCM problem you're having, thereby making it easier for you to view the data on the SQL database files.
