Outlook 2007: Business Contact Manager installation failure

On a Windows XP Pro SP3 Computer I am trying to install MS Office Business Contact Manager 2007 for Outlook 2007.  I get an error message during the installation that refers me to the attached LOG file. It states that it cannot access a file on the CD drive.  I have used multiple drives and multiple CDs with no success.  the installation starts ok so I don't believe its a disk issue at all.

I copied the CD contents locally and tried to installing from there. No go.  I also used the  Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. It did not have a file for Business Contact Manager.  Attached is the error log that was produced and a screenshot of the message.  

This is my second posting for this issue.  The previous was http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Q_26903881.html error-business-contact-mgr-2007-.pdf MBSsetuptmp117.log

I was just doing some digging for possible installation gotchas.  Do you have multiple office CD's for this installation? The Microsoft website alludes to the program being on Disc 2:

Hi
Yes I have multiple CDs.  Office is on Disk 1 and BCM is on Disk 2.  The error messages just states that " ... Disk 2 cannot continue".

I have to go meet someone for lunch but didn't want to leave you hanging.  I searched your error message and it sent me to a troubleshooting site.  Try some of the things on the site and I'll see if I can pinpoint anything good when I'm back:

I can't believe all my Bing searches never gave this link as a result.  Disappointing because I found the fix right away.  Below are the instructions I followed and then re-ran the installation from CD.  Worked fine.  Thanks for the link.

1.On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
2.In Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Remove a program.
3.In the Currently installed programs list, click Microsoft Primary Interop Assemblies, and then click Remove.
4.Follow the instructions on your screen.
