This is not for readers of this blog

It is for people who do a search for 'outlook business contact manager greyed out'. I installed a trial of MS project yesterday. Something during the installation screwed up Business Contact Manager in Outlook 2007. To fix it, go to Tools in Outlook, and Trust Center. Select Add ins and hit Go at the bottom (COM add ins will be selected). Click on Business Contact Manager for outlook and hit OK. Then go to Help and click Activate Business contact manager. If that doesn't work, Click on Help and Disabled items. If Addin:BCMMxxx.dll is there, click it and hit enable. There, fixed.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
