Jump to solution

Hi Guys,

Recently  we have Turned off Skype for business auto run from group policy.

i would like to control this in UEM

but for some reason reg key is not working from UEM

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

“Lync”=“C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\lync.exe" /fromrunkey

This is on Windows 10 1607

Thanks

This is what it should look like in your reg file.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

"Lync"="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\\Office16\\lync.exe\" /fromrunkey"

Hi Natestack,

Maybe the forum messed with the content you pasted, but there should be square brackets ('[' and ']') around the registry key, and the quotes around "Lync" and before "C:\Program Files\..." should be straight quotes instead of curly ones. Also, the standard UEM boilerplate content for .REG files is missing.

Just to make sure, can you post the config file you're using as an attachment, and also a FlexEngine log (at log level DEBUG) for a session in which you apply this setting?

Additionally, if that doesn't work(but it should)

You can create a shortcut to Skype in the Programs StartUp folder for the user and it will launch that way. I do that for some other apps.

Hi Natestack,

You can use ADMX based settings for it, well we can also use Reg but I request you to give a try on it.

please provide your feedback/update on it.

Thank you,

Vkmr.
