Our company is in the process of deploying Lync to our users. We intend to use GFI LANGuard to deploy the software to client machines. In testing, the installation has gone smooth on both Vista and Win7 systems. But on XP machines, when the install completes, it closes any open MS Office programs. More troubling, is that Outlook is closed, then reopens automatically, but prompts for a new profile to be created. If you cancel this, then reopen Outlook once more, it's fine, it returns to the user's original profile.
So, the issue is that the majority of our PCs run XP. If we push this out with this behavior, users will freak out, and it will just result in desktop visits, thereby negating the advantage of pushing the installer out via LANGuard.
