Deploying the Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook

Communications Server 2007 R2

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 will reach end of support on January 9, 2018. To stay supported, you will need to upgrade. For more information, see Resources to help you upgrade your Office 2007 servers and clients.

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 users must use the Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook messaging and collaboration client to schedule meetings. The Conferencing Add-in for Outlook can also be used with the Office Live Meeting service.

The Conferencing Add-in for Outlook is available as a self-extracting .exe file. The Conferencing Add-in for Outlook can be installed by using standard Windows Installer-based deployment tools, such as Systems Management Server (SMS) or Active Directory Domain Services Group Policy.

Individual users who are logged on as a member of the Administrators group or who have the necessary permissions can also install the Conferencing Add-in for Outlook themselves. Membership in the Power Users group does not provide sufficient permissions to install the Conferencing Add-in for Outlook.

noteNote:
A single computer cannot contain multiple versions of Office Live Meeting add-ins. If there are earlier versions of Office Live Meeting add-ins on the computer, the Windows Installer will remove them before installing the latest version.

  1. Close Outlook.

  2. To install the Conferencing Add-in for Outlook, run ConfAddins_Setup.exe.

    noteNote:
    After you install the Conferencing Add-in for the first time, a dialog box appears asking you to close and reopen Outlook.
