As most of you know Microsoft released their new Office 2013 suite. The new Lync 2013 client is included with Office 2013. But if you are like me I connect to multiple environments and not all of them are updated or running the latest server build. Here is a quick guide on how to connect your new Lync 2013 client to your OCS 2007 or OCS 2007 R2 environment.
- Install Lync 2013 client.
- Configure it and try to connect to your environment. (Use your firstname.lastname@example.org) for the login information.
You will receive and error similar to this one.
Open RegEdit and create a new key to disable the server version check. For 32 bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftOffice15.0Lync or 64bit
- Exit the Lync 2013 client.
- Try to login again.
You should be successful to log in.
