  1. I bought the office small business upgrade to Office, the fist disk works
    fine to upgrade the office on computer but when I put in the second disk with
    the package which has the business contact manager for outlook on it I get
    this error:

    setup failed to install the required component Microsoft office 2007 primary
    interop assemblies, business contact manager for outlook 2007 cannot
    continue, see MBSsetuptmp7a9f.log

    Ive looked in that file and its just a jumple of words and things makes no
    sence to me, only if you know something about this stuff. help me here, why
    won't it install the contact manage or the interop assemblies?

    What a pain.

    I read the log that was referred on the error message, and noted that it couldn't find the Primary Interop Assembly file.

    When you initiate the install of BCM 2007, it makes a temp file under C:\, before you click next, go into that file and rename "piaredist" to "o2007pia".

    Then the BCM will load.
