Sign in and out in Microsoft Lync Client


  1. Hi, my name is Guido from belgium and I could need your assistance. I need to create a small C# or .net application based on the Lync api, but I’m not used to program in these languages. Is it possible to get in contact to discuss?
    Best regards,

    • Sure Guido,
      just send me an email and I’ll try to help you.

      Kind regards,

  2. are we able to check if client’s lync is signed in using

    • Unfortunatelly, there is no way to do this in Lync 2010. In Lync 2013, you’ll be able to do it by using UCWA on the web.

  3. So it means we can only integrate a windows application running on users machine to integrate with Lync on his machine for 2010. Does it provide a way to capture status of the user along with user calendar schedule?

    • Yes, it means only windows user can be signed in into Lync. User status, along with his current calendar schedule is indicated by its presence information. You should subscribe to Self events, such as AvailabilityChanged, and inspect the corresponding data.

  4. Hi Guys,

    Would it be possible to run SDK commands when lync is not runnig on the machine? Currently I have tried to make Lync client run as a service, I manged to do it partially with NSSM tools – Lync service is running, lync.exe process created. But when calling GetClient function from SDK it says that client is not running on the machine. Shell is running on the same user on which service and lync process is running. Any ideas? 🙂

    • Well, unfortunatelly, accessing Lync Client API when process is not running is not possible. So, no luck there. Major improvement will be when the full UCJA stack will be available (Skype for Business), since there will be no client process required to query the Lync API.
