Cannot join meetings in Lync 2010 after you install OneDrive for Business

Applies to: Skype for Business


When you click a meeting hyperlink, you are directed to Microsoft Lync Web App instead of Microsoft Lync 2010. 


This issue occurs because the Office 2013 Lync MeetingJoin ActiveX control is installed unexpectedly as part of OneDrive for Business update package. Therefore, when you click the meeting hyperlink, the control tries to redirect the call to Lync 2013 although Lync 2013 is not installed.
