Celebrating 10 Years as a Microsoft MVP

Back from my vacation, I am thrilled to share that I have been awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for the 10th consecutive year. In addition to being recognized as an expert within Teams, I am have also been recognized as an expert with Microsoft Copilot. This means a lot to me.  Being an MVP has been an incredibly rewarding journey, both personally and professionally. It has provided me with countless opportunities to grow, learn, and connect with like-minded professionals who share a passion for technology and innovation.  The award is not just a title; it's a testament to the hard work, dedication, and contributions to the tech community. It's a privilege to be part of such an esteemed group of individuals who share the same love for technology, and sharing their knowledge about it.  As I reflect on the past decade, I am thankful for the experiences and knowledge I've gained. This recognition motivates me to continue sharing my expertise, mentor

Lync owas windows 8_1 bug

** UPDATE **
The bug has been fixed in the following update: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2837634
You might have to break the farm, and recreate it after the update.

There is a known bug affecting windows 8.1 users when they try to present a PowerPoint presentation in any meeting. If you have installed any version of Windows 8.1 and tried it, you might have seen the all too familiar screen:

If you have tried to debug the error, you might be as frustrated as me, because there is (at least I was not able to find any) no visible error on any server or client component. Even a Fiddler trace revealed nothing but 200 OK messages.

This bug is not present in Lync Online, and I hope we'll see a bugfix for the onprem installations as well soon.

In the meantime, do as I did to correct the error. Join your meeting through the web browser, appending ?sl=2 to your meet url. At least I was able to run the presentation through my webapp.

Hope this helps, and that we see a bugfix soon :)
