  1. Nice Information Tom, here it is my blog post about GalDownloadDelay registry key, hoping to complement your post!!!

    Thanks for this, it’s really useful information. I’m looking for the location of the registry keys that govern custom presence states, since it’s changed from Lync 2010. Does anyone have any idea of where they are? (Or in fact, has anyone got custom presence to work in Lync 2013?) Thanks! :-)

  3. Carlos says:

    How can i make the presence to always “available” and never to go on away mode on one particular user without modifying the settings on the Lync Server?.

    Thanks,

    Carlos

    Hi

    I have a problem with Lync 2013. For some reasons in the My Pictures Screen the Button to change the picture is greyed and nobody can tell me why.
    I found the RegKey e.g. ExternalPhotoUrl, but add-in an Url has no effect.
    Can you might help me?

    Many thx
    Reinhard

    • Hi,

      External Pictures from Web URL are depreciated in Lync 2013 I’m afraid.

      The “outlook social connector” allows pictures from linkedin (I know that’s not quite the same)

      cheers

    How about the version number – is that stored anywhere?

  6. John Clarke says:

    Hi Tom.

    Is there a way to disable all Lync settings? So the user is unable to change what I am defining in the registry?

    I found both yours and Gilberto’s posts very useful.

    Thanks
    John

    Very informative blog Tom,

    However I was wondering if you know the registry key to disallow WhiteBoard feature. I know there is a ‘AllowAnnocations’ in Client Policy, but I was looking something to add in the Group Policy of the user.

    Appropriate your help in advance.

    Hi Tom,

    I have an issue with a Lync install where I am trying to use an external video capture device with Lync. I have set it up and can see the video in the settings preview window. However when you attempt to make a call there is a message that the video device is in use by another application. Can you tell me where in the registry settings you can get Lync to look at the external device during the call process as well?

    It would allow much better cameras being used where content is important I.E. document cameras.

    Thanks Simon
