  • Hi,

    Which version of Office do you use?

    In my experience, it could use GPO to disable add-in by Office ADMX files.

    I did a testing with Office 2016.

    1. Download the Office 2016 ADMX file, extracted the files and copy them under ADMX to the policy central store (e.g. c:\windows\ PolicyDefinitions)

    2. Edit the GPO, navigate to “User Configuration” – “Administrative Templates : Policy definition (ADMX file …)” – “Microsoft Outlook 2016” – “Miscellaneous” – “List of managed add-ins”

    Enable it and add “UCAddin.LyncAddin.1” with Value “0”. See below:

    3. Run “gpupdate /force”, restart the test machine, the add-in is shown disabled by administrator.
