Third party IM integration with outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to understand the procedure of Integration the IM Client with Outlook 2010. The below link is used for this :-

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj900715.aspx

    Outlook is able to reach the CreateInstance method of my implementation.

    1. If I have the Lync Client installed than the controls reaches till GetInterfaceMethod, in which I am returning the object of ILyncClient.

    There is no progress after this. Following error is showed in the outlook debugs :

    MsoIMProviderFactory--HrEnsureDefaultIMAppRegKeys Succeeded opening reg key (HKCU-SOFTWARE\IM Providers)

    CMsoIMProviderFactory--HrEnsureDefaultIMAppRegKeys Succeeded querying reg key (HKCU-SOFTWARE\IM Providers-DefaultIMApp-IMapp)

    CMsoIMProviderFactory--HrEnsureDefaultIMProcessRegKey Succeeded opening reg key (HKCU-SOFTWARE\IM Providers\IMapp)

    CMsoIMProviderFactory--HrEnsureDefaultIMProcessRegKey Succeeded opening reg key (HKLM-SOFTWARE\IM Providers\IMapp)

    CMsoIMProviderFactory--WhichMessengerInProcessList Using (IMapp) process name for search

    CMsoIMProviderFactory--WhichMessengerInProcessList Using (IMapp) process name for search

    Guys please give your feedback regarding the same ?????

    1. If I don’t have Lync Client Installed than control never reaches to Authentication Method.

    A. Do we need to implement the IMessenger interface also ?

    B. If yes then please show some pointers on how to do that ?

    Any pointers to resolve this would be helpful.

    For building the COM server we are using out of process COM example(CSExeCOMServer). I had tried the same setup with outlook 2013 also. In this too the output remains the same.

    Environment :-

    Windows 7 Service Pack1 .

    Outlook 2010 & 2013.
