I've been working on an image for Windows Embedded Standard 2009 on a thin client, and after I finished installing software/settings and Default User settings, when I sign onto the laptop as a new user, the "" address is set as the sign-in address in the Lync 2010 client.

Anyone know a setting somewhere I can change this so that if signs onto the laptop, it won't load to Lync instead of the

lync might be referred to as Communicator too, since that appears to be the program file folder name and the regkey names

    The sign in address of "" is the default address that appears when you install Lync but have not signed in successfully with a valid user.
    Once you login successfully, it will auto login with the users credentials upon logon to the local machine.

    It will automatically logon new users? or each brand new user login will need to type in their e-mail address?
    Somehow that is not the case with my other build, and I can't recall doing anything specific to make it work. Just any new user who logs in would automatically be signed into Lync -- pass through windows authentication.

    As mentioned, each user needs to login successfully, thereafter it will remember and login with the users credentials successfully.

    Accepted Solution

    I was able to get the auto login to work by deleting:

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Shared\UcClient > ServerSipUri

    And then I had to install the domain certificates to Windows. They weren't installing automatically.
