July 2012 Updates to OCS 2007 R2

There were some updates released yesterday for Microsoft OCS 2007 R2.

I haven’t had a chance to look at them in detail, but they all look mostly related to the Group Chat functionality:

These updates bring the build number up to 3.5.6907.258.

The noteworthy hotfix that is addressed is the delay when adding a member to a Group Chat room.

  • Hi Brent,

    Great question. As far as I know, Exchange 2013 integration is fully supported with OCS 2007 R2. There is TechNet references for certain features such as Unified Messaging working with OCS 2007 R2 (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb676409(v=exchg.150).aspx). I would do a quick search for specific features on TechNet just to be sure they coexist.

    Also, if you haven’t already asked the question in the Microsoft Lync/OCS forum I would do that: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/ocs. There is a specific forum dedicated to integration: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/ocsucintegration/threads. I will also try to get a more definitive answer.

    Hope that helps, Curtis

    We are running OCS 2007 R2 and Exchange 2007. We will probably upgrade both deployments to their respective 2013 versions this year. Will Exchange 2013 cooperate with OCS 2007 R2 if we do the Exchange migration first? Or, should Lync come first, followed by Exchange?

  • Hi, here are a couple of options you can explore:

    1) I would ask your question in the Microsoft Lync Server SDK and Office Communications Server SDK forum (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-in/communicationsserversdk/threads). This forum is well moderated with Communicator and Lync dev experts. There *might* be an API call in one of the client-side API’s.

    2) There are several registry entries related to window height I see in the registry key “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Communicator”.


    You might want to research these or try tweaking them. Caveat – I assume you are responsible enough to edit the registry directly :-) . I believe the IM* values control the window height of the *conversation window*.

    3) You could develop a windows app that finds the communicator process and controls the window size. Admittedly that is not a nice solution and the communicator application would have to be running first. It sounds like you want the ability to programmatically set it before it launches.

    Hope that helps,

    I have a question regarding MOC 2007 R2 communicator window.
    Is there any way we can control the size (height and width) of the communicator programatically, either through registry entries or custom .NET code. This is an urgent requirement.
    Please help me out.
