I've had 2013 office and lync working for awhile now. Friday I was given the new version of Outlook 2013. Everything worked find that day. Yesterday occasionally lync would crash when trying to click a user to IM. I'd restart and it would work fine. Today I couldn't get lync to IM anyone. Every time I'd click the user it would stop working. After researching on the web someone said running as ADMIN worked for them. That worked for me also. I want to know what I can do to fix this so I don't have to do that every time. Someone thought it had something to do with rights/ownership of files between lync and outlook. Any ideas?
