Hello,

It's urgent,  i need to didable Lync Button on Outlook.
setting the value to 2 for the key "LoadBehavior" located at :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\UCAddin.LyncAddin.1
will do the job.
But i need to do it through GPO, and i can't find any setting on the ADM file for LYNC 2010, 2013 and Office 2010.

How can i deploy this by GPO?
I have windows XP and 7 environment

Thank you!

You can use Group Policy Preferences to push out Registry keys. That is how i would work around a group policy item not found.

Group Policy Preferences Registry Push

Just wanted to add another note...
When you use Group Policy Preferences it will natively work with Windows Vista and up. If you have XP Clients in your environment you will need to make sure that the client side extension has been installed on those machines.

You can download an ADM template for Office 2013 which will then have policies you can apply to Lync users. However i am not sure if when you need is part of the ADM template as it is pretty specific.
