    I'm trying to do a deployment of Office 2010 along with their Business Contact Manager 2010 CRM outlook add-in.

    Everything going (mostly) okay until i get to the last workstation and it tells me that the machine doesn't meet the minimum system requirements of 1ghz processor and 512 ram, while the computer in question is a celeron D 420 1.6ghz with 1gig ram.

    Not sure why it doesn't understand that the computer is a-okay, but it thinks it isn't.

    How can this test be bypassed so i can just install this dang add-in?

    I downloaded BCM2010 as an exe, extracted it, and am running Setup.exe which triggers the check.

    Any help would be awesome, thanks.
