Way to Auto start SFB in all client machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there any way to auto start SFB in all machines present across country?

    As although we managed to deploy it in all machines via SCCM but still more than half of the users haven't opened it yet.

    So what here I'm asking is any type of Group policy or via any other mean?

    It would be much better if you can tell a way from SFB servers itself i.e. we don't have to go to other teams for help.

  • Hi,

    You can create a batch file consisting of below code and then can deploy it via your respective deployment tool across all client machines.

    @echo off
    cd "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16"
    start lync.exe
    exit

  • Hi WorkingOut,

    Per my knowledge, there seems no group policy to let you start SFB client in bulk so far.

    But for a single client, you could configure auto start for SFB client, please refer to the following blog, it’s same to SFB 2015

    Hope this reply is helpful to you.

  • Hi Alice,

    I'm already aware of that but cant it be launched by configuring GPO of "Run these programs at user logon"?
