This is the xml file i'm using. I have included the automatic activation command but i'm still asked to activate over the internet or by phone.There is no issue with proxy or accessing the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Many thanks for your response. I have spent the past two days trying everything with this. The latest i've tried is OCT. I set the value to AUTO_ACTIVATE = 1 Everything has been setup correctly. The activation whizard keeps coming up. I can manually select activate and it works which would suggest that it's not proxy related. I've hit a brick wall now. I'm using mak license and i have tried both lync and lync sp1.

My guess would be that activation is on a per-user basis. The installation log - which of course you specified on your command line - will show where the XML file was installed. I suspect it's gone to the local System user's profile.

If I'm right, you need to move the component containing the XML into a new feature and make that feature the parent of the main Link feature, assuming that that feature contains an advertised shortcut or other entry-point. The use of that shortcut will then cuase self-healing of the feature tree to occur, your XML file will get copied to the currebtly logged-in user's profile and all will be well with the world! :-)

Thanks guys for you assistance. I ended up using OCT and had to use Lync 2013 instead of Lync 2013SP1. This worked a treat

Are you using KMS or MAK license???

Try using the OSPP: (and not putting the command in the XML file)

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS"


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS"
