    Office 2007 (disk 1) installs fine. However, BCM 2007 (disk 2) brings up a
    message saying the SQL Server 2005 SP3 is required to run BCM on this version
    of windows. I press 'Run program' to continue. the message appears again
    and I press 'Run program' again. Then an error message saying that SQL
    Server 2005 Express (MSSMLBIZ) failed to install and refer to a log file for
    more detail. the log file tells me nothing i didn't already know, ie, it
    failed to install.

    I'm aware that you have to download SQL Server 2005 SP3 BEFORE running BCM.
    But if it fails to install, i can't apply the patch.

    How do I proceed?

    This is annoying becuase the Microsoft Compatability Centre informs me that
    BCM 2007 is fully compatible with Win 7 64-bit.

  2. Here are some things you can try:
    try to install bcm again

    if that doesn't work, try:
    uninstall all versions of sql
    install bcm (it will install sql for you)
    continue, or restart the install bcm
