VS2010SP1 - Unknown Error Integrating With Microsoft Lync 2013

    Question

  • VS2010SP1 started to consistenly throw an Unknown Error upon Integrating With Microsoft Lync 2013 from within Team Explorer inside VS : An unknown error has occurred integrating with your instant messaging client : Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {8885370D-B33E-44B7-875D-28E403CF9270} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG))..

    Reparing Lync client 2013 and reboot PC did not solve the problem. Would appreciate a practical solution. Thank u

  • Hi Moital, 

    Thanks for your reply.

    As far as I know the Lync 2013 on longer has its own installer. Instead, Lync 2013 included with the Office 2013 setup program. Please refer to this document: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj204827(v=ocs.15).aspx.   

    As you’re using VS 2010 SP1, so I think you installed the TFS Power Tools December 2011 on your client, right? As we know that Team Members is the feature which provide by TFS Power Tools, and you’re using VS 2010 Power Tools version, so I suggest you install the Lync 2010 for your Team Members feature. The Lync 2010 works fine with TFS Power Tools December 2011.

  • Hi Moital,

    Thanks for your post.

    Where did you download the Lync 2013?

    You installed the x64 or x86 Lync 2013 on your machine? I suggest you install the x84 Lync.

    This same issue also happened on another client which installed VS 2010SP1 and Lync 2013?

  • The problem occurs with lync 2013 client, which is 32 bit on windows 7 32 bit. Nonetheless, i'll double check though win 7 not spposed to let me install lync client 64 bit client on it.

    What else could that be ? Any ideas ? Or how to bypass ?

  • Hi Moital,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Where you download this Lync 2013? I will install this same Lync 2013 on my VS 2010 SP1 client to test it.

  • Very kind of you - thank u very much.

    Lync 2013 client was downloaded from https://licensing.microsoft.com/ on Dec 2012. Is there an update that i should try to download & install ?

    BTW i tried to repair VS 2010 SP1 this morning and reboot my PC, but alas no change with respect to issue reported.

  • Thank u very much for the clear reply.

    We're planning to upgarde soon to TFS 2012 on our premises, hence i could either revert for now to Lync 2010 as suggested, or try again after the upgrade (as it may yield VS 2010 SP1 & Power Tools 2012 to integrate with Lync 2013 client, and later on from VS 2012 as well as applicable).
