widget with Lync Server 2013

Nov 27, 2012 at 9:01 AM


I migrated our Lync Server 2010 to Lync Server 2013 and now widget is not working with new pool. I just changed web.config file with new value:

<add key="LyncServer" value="lync2013entpool.mydomain.com" />


I am getting error:

2012-11-27 10:35:07,462 [3] ERROR Lync.Widget.Service.Presence.UcmaHelper [(null)] - Initialization did not complete in expected time.
2012-11-27 10:35:07,462 [3] ERROR Lync.Widget.Service.Presence.UcPresenceProvider [(null)] - UCPresenceProvider failed: Could not initialize remote presence view {0}

   at Lync.Widget.Service.Presence.UcPresenceProvider.InitializeRemotePresenceView() in C:\inetpub\Lync.Widget.Service\Presence\UcPresenceProvider.cs:line 161
i have created trusted application on new pool. Any ideas?

I'm thinking of deploying this on Lync 2013. Has anyone gotten it working?

Soon (planned next week) a new version of this widget suited for 2013 will appear.

Please, update documentation too on how to install & configure on Lync 2013. I'm new to Lync and for me is really difficult to understand your documentation, such as Chapter 4 "Complile and Deploy the LyncService solution using Visiual Studio 2010" ?!?!??!
Great project.

Please can you make a tutorial step by step because this one is not sufficient when we have a complex topology.

Nice job and i'm waiting for this widget 2013 (There is a relationship with Techdays?)

Hello OrbitOne,

I can see that your demo is functional again but there are no updates about Lync 2013 integration. Are you planning to support this project further?

Thank you
