  • Hi SaiTech,

    If you wanna disable the popups “Welcome to Lync”, please try to set the value of Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Communicator\FirstRunPlayed to 1. Hope it helps.

  • Yes, here:

    using registry, to quote Drago totev :

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator]
     "FirstRunLaunchMode"=dword:00000001
    

    to use group policy:

     “To define Group Policy settings by using the Lync 2010 administrative template file
     
    1. Copy the Lync “.adm” file from your distribution disk to the %windir%/inf folder.
     
    2. Use the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Group Policy Object Editor to enable or disable specific policy settings."

  • Thanks Matt,

    I have tried GPP

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator]
     FirstRunLaunchMode"=dword:00000001 and FirstRunLaunchMode"=dword:00000000

    Still got the Microsoft Lync 2010 Splash tutorial...
