Remove KB3101496 for Skype for Business client

Microsoft recently released a security update for the Skype for Business client, which seems to be causing issues for people.

The one I noticed first, was the lack of missed call emails being delivered to users.
This script will remove the 32-bit version of the update:

@ECHO OFF
taskkill /IM lync.exe /F
msiexec /package {90150000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /uninstall {6A0E6442-2FD5-499F-9E97-51E3375FF53C} /quiet /qb /norestart
msiexec /package {90150000-002A-0000-1000-0000000FF1CE} /uninstall {6A0E6442-2FD5-499F-9E97-51E3375FF53C} /quiet /qb /norestart
msiexec /package {90150000-012B-0414-0000-0000000FF1CE} /uninstall {6A0E6442-2FD5-499F-9E97-51E3375FF53C} /quiet /qb /norestart
EXIT /B 0

UPDATE: This issue was resolved in KB3114732 that released in February.

Move media subfolders out of “My Documents” with ease

At work, we are in the process of moving all our users’ “My Documents” folder to a new file server, and we also thought that we’d do some changes to the Folder Redirection GPO.

Supermove2000-FollowGPO

Several applications likes to save to the dedicated media folders by default, which can eat up a lot of space if you set the media folders (My Pictures, My Music and My Vidoes) to simply follow the “My Documents” folder in your GPO (which it does by default).

This means that you can easily end up backing up your users’ private iTunes libraries, family photos and what ever they might have stored in the “My Videos” folder.

So before enabling the new GPO where these media folders were redirected to each users’ local profile, I wanted to move these files out of the way.

Supermove2000-LocalGPO

So I give you…

Supermove 2000.

It’s fairly simple, enter the current location of the root Documents-folder (source), the where you would like to have the media folders and their content copied or moved (destination).

Since the “My Documents” folder is often named based on local region, you will also be prompted for the name used in your environment.

Robocopy will now take care of the rest, and leave you logs for each folder moved for each user.

Supermove2000-IMG

It’s currently set up to move the regional names of the media folders as well, but this can be easily edited in the batch file to suit your own needs.

If everything is in English and/or Norwegian, you are good to go. The file will check to see if the folders exist before doing anything.

High fives to Morten for helping out!

Download the batch file here (.zip).

Or copy this text into your favorite text editor, and save as either .bat or .cmd:

Making calls with Lync 2010 from the taskbar

We’ve recently migrated to Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and I got a couple of questions from people who got tired of bringing up the Lync client each time they had to make a call.
I tried searching around for custom Lync toolbars, but there doesn’t seem to be any available, and I figured out why.

To make a call from the Windows taskbar, do the following:

  1. Right-click the taskbar, select “Toolbars” and add “Address”.
  2. You’ll get a nifty little address bar docked to your taskbar.
  3. Type in “tel:”, followed by the number you’d like to call, and press enter.

    Lync will now pop up, and you have to click to dial.

You can also use “im:” to start IM sessions, see this handy guide for more tips.

Kom over denne siden her om dagen og tenkte at noen hadde lyst til å vite om den. Jeg er en øl-elsker selv og synes ikke denne var så dum.

Her kan man finne øl man har drukket og ta en liten “Like” på denne, for å holde deg litt oppdatert på hva du faktisk drikker. (Noe som selvfølgelig kan være litt vanskelig til tider).

Det er en enkel og grei side hvor du registrerer deg ved hjelp av et par tastetrykk. Skriv inn e-post, ønsket brukernavn samt passord og du er i gang.

Et lite skjermbilde av mitt dashboard på siden som viser hva slags øl jeg liker osv. Denne vil også etterhvert lage en liste over øl som du kunne hatt lyst til å prøve på bakgrunn av hva du liker.

Siden er bra oppdatert og har hvertfall klart å finne de typene/produsentene som jeg er glad i og som stort sett består av norske bryggerier. Nøgne Ø, Haandbryggeriet og Ægir er faktisk inne med noen typer øl her og dette blir jeg selvfølgelig lett imponert over.

Så om du ønsker å holde en logg over ølkonsumet ditt anbefaler jeg deg å stikke en tur innom goodbre.ws.
