Lync 2013 and PowerPoint slides
Posted on 2013-12-20
Having an issue with the Lync 2013 client and opening a PowerPoint document. When you go to open it, it just says "loading....." and sits there forever. It works with Lync 2010 and XP.
The Web Access Server is fine. No issues. Nothing in the event logs on the FE server or the WAS server. Appears to be client related. Running Windows 7 and using the lastest Lync 2013 client. No error message. Just says Loading.... but never loads.
There is little to go on with Internet searches and those things I can find reference a Registry change which makes no sense at all to me. I mean I can't figure out what they want me to do.
Incredibly frustrating. You would think it would work better with a new OS and client. The fact that Windows XP and Lync 2010 works assures me that the infrastructure is in line and working. This has to be an obscure client issue.
