Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager Fails to Initialize the Common Language Runtime, Why?

If you are seeing the message: Business Contact Manager failed to initialize the Common Language Runtime. ECall methods must be packaged into a subsystem module, BCM isn't really the trouble. You are getting this message because on or around April 11, 2008 an automatic update from Microsoft downloaded a damaged component of the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. 

 On the bright side, today is May 20, 2008 and a patch has already been downloaded on an automatic update. You'll just have to repair it!

To repair the damaged .NET 2.0 component, execute the following steps:

For XP:

  1. Click on Start>Settings>Control Panel
  2. Double-click on Add or Remove Programs icon
  3. Select Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
  4. Click Change/Remove
  5. Choose Repair.
  6. Restart computer

For Vista:

.NET Framework 2.0 is completely integrated into Vista, so it can't be uninstalled/repaired the same way as it can in XP. In the case of Vista, you'll have to run sfc (system file checker).

  1. Click on Start, type cmd in the Start Search Box. [don't press enter yet]
  2. Right-click cmd.exe in Programs list in search results, click Run as Administrator
  3. In command window, type sfc/scannow  -- press enter.

If this still doesn't fix your issue, please look for .NET 2.0 SP1 on www.microsoft.com/downloads . There will be two versions out there, one for 64-b and one for 32-b. If you aren't sure which version of the operating system you're running on, follow the instructions listed by Microsoft here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218/?FR=1
