This LyncPRO tips was featured on The UC Architects podcast Episode 37

Have you ever rebuilt your PC and installed a fresh Lync client or use a customer Lync computer to validate features where you get these pop-ups welcoming you in to the meeting, notifying you that the meeting will continue after you leave the meeting? Well now MVP Greig Sheridan has created a PowerShell script that disables these pop-ups through registry for you. What the script does

  • .\Set-Lync2013ClientWarnings.ps1 expert
    • will disable all pop ups
  • .\Set-Lync2013ClientWarnings.ps1 default
    • will delete the registry entries so that you can demo the pop-ups or you want to live like a new user
  • Will control these scenarios
    • DSCLOSEVOICE”, “DSCLOSEVOICEVIDEO”, “DSCLOSELSCONF”, “DSLogoutCloseConversations”, “DSStartAppsharingNotification”, “DSAppsharingGrantControlNotification”, “DSAppsharingGrantControlToSpecificPersonNotification


Totally recommend that you as a LyncPRO use this script to control your pop-up experience. Head over to Greig’s blog to download the script
