Audio option for joining a meeting is unavailable when "Do not join audio" option is selected in Lync 2013 (Skype for Business)


Assume that you select the Do not join audio option under Joining conference calls in Microsoft Lync 2013 (Skype for Business). You do this by selecting  Options > Skype Meetings on the Tools menu.

However, when you try to select the Audio option to join a meeting in which another participant is sharing video, the option is unavailable (appears dimmed). You must select the Hang Up button and then select the Audio option to rejoin the meeting.


To fix this issue, install the March 8, 2016 update (KB3114831) for Lync 2013 (Skype for Business).

Note Lync 2013 was upgraded to Skype for Business in April 2015.
