about 1 year ago Scott Hanselman wrote an awesome lync tool named Lync 2010 Super Simple Auto Answer Video Kiosk with Full Screen, you can find a complete description here :
Basically this tool let you to turn any PC in a complete “auto remote working machine” just calling it from Lync .
This can be very useful in any situations in which we have to connect, without human intervention, in that PC . For example it can be used to see, with video, what’s happening in that place, or simply when you want to show Lync feature during sales presentations.
Usage is very simple, just start Lync 2010 or Lync 2013 ,(binaries version below is with NotUISuppressed, this mean that you have to start Lync client before launching AutoAnswer) , go to SuperSimpleLyncKiosk.exe.config file and insert your sip uri like this :
<setting name=”sipEmailAddress” serializeAs=”String”>
Ready to work , just open SuperSimpleLyncKiosk.exe and enjoy 🙂
Just a couple of months ago , i saw that there’s not a direct download to binaries , for this reason I contact Scott asking him the permission to publish binaries , thanks Scott!! 🙂
So for who that doesn’t have a way to compile a Visual Studio project , here below you can find the executable :
Personally i learn a lot seeing code of this tool, and for this i thanks another time Scott for his job.
Obviously all credit goes to Scott 🙂
