Skype For Business web-app plugin

Eduards 791 Reputation points


Recently we decided to deploy "Skype for business web plugin" using SCCM. After some testing I discovered that for successful installation this program should be installed "for user" so basically in user context. After deployment this plugin installed successfully for users in their workstations but whenever user tries to join or open some meeting online


Nothing happens. If I gave a user Local Administrator on his workstation everything starts working. I tried to see some logs, and event but there nothing. What could be the cause? And is there some kind of solution?

I don't want to give user a local admin rights on their PC. :)

    Hi @Eduards ,

    Have you tried to change another browser to join Skype meeting?

    To troubleshoot this issue, you can try to follow these steps:

    1. Exit the meeting and close all browser windows.
    2. Open an InPrivate browsing session in the browser.
    3. Make sure that your browser allows ActiveX controls to load and run.

    If that didn’t work, please go to Control Panel > Programs and features, uninstall existing versions of the plug-in, and then try signing in again.
