  • Follow that link for advice on how to download Office click-to-run and convert it to an App-V package...

    When I did this, I set the Product ID in the CustomConfig.xml file as ProPlusVolume and used ExcludeApp tags to exclude all apps except for Lync:

    • Access
    • Excel
    • Groove
    • InfoPath
    • OneNote
    • Outlook
    • PowerPoint
    • Project
    • Publisher
    • SharePointDesigner
    • Visio
    • Word

    Here is the info on how to configure this file:

    I believe it is also possible to set the Product ID to Lync, but not sure of the exact value to set and I have not tried this myself. Bonus tip - when you deploy Lync 2013 virtually, the plugins automatically integrate with the locally installed copy of Outlook!

  • Thank you, I verified and it is working fine.

    But when I download files using StdVolume, I’m not getting Lync. Is it a known behaviour?

    Also the standard way of installation we have Lync Basic and Lync Enterprise. How can I differentiate with App-V Sequenced application? Will ProPlusVolume Lync suffice Lync Enterprise?
