Lync 2013 Cleint verus Web App
Posted on 2014-02-25
We have recently installed Office Pro 2013. In doing those installs, Lync2013 is installed. We currently do not use Lync but plan to in the future.
We also have a lot of requests to join Lync meetings.
On PCs where we have installed Lync, when we click on a meeting invite the thick client for Lync starts up and wants us to enter a Lync server and authentication credentials. Since we do not have a Lync server we cannot access that meeting on those PCs.
On PCs where we have not installed the Lync client the web app opens and we are able to join the meeting.
Is there a way to tell the PCS with the client installed to open the web application?
I looked at default programs under settings. On the PCs without the client, there is no option for a default program.
On the PCs with Lync there are two options Lync15 and Lync15Classic. In our case both are checked. I do not see anything for the web client.
Long way of asking is there a way to have Lync 2013 client installed on a PC and set Lync up so that the web version is used to open lync requests until we actually setup our server?
