Company purchased a CRM program that is a plugin to Outlook, from Avidian Technologies called Prophet....anyone used this?

Anyhow, they state I need to have Outlook running on my server that is running SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007, I had my opinion that I didn't want to spend the extra money and thought it was pointless. Downloaded Business/Home, tried install, said needed version Win7/Vista/XP...Downloaded Office Professional...same thing

Did some searching found a few places where it is a big "no no" on the web but I didn't find anything on Experts Exchange...am I the only idiot that tried it...LOL

Looking for answers to support the no's to present back to the CRM company or if it is okay, how to do so

Thanks in advance

It's not a problem with Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010 as long as the version of outlook is 2007 or 2010, it was a problem in earlier versions of Exchange and earlier versions of outlook.

Did you try installing just Outlook not the whole of office?
Was this outlook 2007 or 2010

That's odd, no reason why it shouldn't install on SBS

Inserted Disk and installed with no problems....must be a hiccup in the online download version...I wanted the trial, but we just went and bought one

Probably something in the trial version is expecting a desktop OS
