How to Install/Activate Business Contact Manager with Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Trial?

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
   I downloaded the trial recently.  The site said that Professional included Business Contact Manager.  But when I run Outook, I see no sign of BCM.  From Control Panel, I chose "Change" at "Microsoft Office 2007 Professional" but still see no sign of BCM.  No sign of BCM at the "Add/Remove Programs" at Control Panel, either.
   The Microsoft Help information says that BCM is downloaded by clicking on the second link on the download page  but I cant see a second link at the download site.  Anyone know about the second link?

This site should allow you to download Outlook 2007 with BCM as a trial or use the Web based version.

This site should also get it.  It is available ONLY in the Professional and Small Business versions.

     I clicked on the link, which took me to Outlook 2007 Trial.  I clicked the link to download that (even though it is already installed on my system), and it took me to the Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Trial download page.
     Office 2007 Professional Trial is already installed on my system (for about a week now).  Will it cause problems or issues to download it again?

I gave him the correct answer.  I think he may have just not bothered to award points and close.

      I assigned points and closed the question yesterday.
      I could't find the "second link" described to access BCM, so I am still BCM-less.
      And there is no second CD because the Office trial was downloaded.

This question is not closed.  If you had more than one question asking the same thing, that could be the issue.  But if you look at all the comments on this question, none are marked as the answer.

BTW, I downloaded the Outlook 2007 trial from this link:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/contactmanager/FX101674171033.aspx
and it included the BCM.
