Upgrading to Office Communicator 2007

Recently, my company laptop was upgraded to Communicator 2007.

Two things I did not like about this:

  • the “old” communicator 2005 had the possibility to do screen sharing. In OCS2007, it’s not there anymore. Of course, you can upgrade your conversation to live meeting, but we do not have that yet.
  • imageafter installation, my presence icons in Outlook 2007 did not work anymore.  And this made me realise how convenient these things are, and how quickly you get used to them: you start a new message, type in your recipient, you notice that he is in the office,… you close the message and go see him!
    Fortunately, I got them back to work by installing a microsoft update.
