Meeting validation code removed from UCAddin.dll (Lync plug-in for Outlook)


In previous versions of Lync 2013 (Skype for Business), the UCAddin.dll (Lync plug-in for Outlook) had the capability to scan meetings when you joined a meeting for limited issues such as Meet URL changes or expiry.

You might see a “Send An Updated Invitation” message window that resembles one of the following screen shots.

This functionality was known to cause some stability issues in clients, including freezes and false positives. Because of these issues, this code was removed starting in the August 11, 2015 Update for Lync 2013 (Skype for Business).

More Information

Microsoft recommends that you use the Meeting Migration Tool to update meetings in which the Meet URL has been changed.
