How to retrieve data from broken BCM database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. My client has the MDF/LDF files from SQLExpress 2005 that were created from Outlook 2007 Business Contacts Manager. His XP machine got whacked so he bought a new Windows7 machine running Office 2007. Now he can't re-open the database in Outlook or directly in SSMS because he's "Not the owner of this database". He has an sbb backup from a few months ago which BCM started restoring but then rejected for the same reason. We tried changing his computer name and user name to what it was on the old machine (we think!) but got the same error.

    Any help on how we can retrieve his contacts?

  • I finally figured it out...I had to change the DBowner to the new Windows Login, which then made it appear on the BCM dropdown list.
