Custom Lync Room System

Keep update on this project by following this link... http://bit.ly/netadmlr

This past month (April 2014) has been spent working on a custom Lync Room System solution that doesn't involve purchasing a Lync Room System.

Followed the Lync Room System deployment guide for the LRS account setup, but instead of the LRS special software/hardware...
It uses the Lync 2013 client and can be deployed to any Windows 7 computer.

Update - April 30, 2014 - Now using Rainmeter software to add Desktop icons, clock, volume control and battery level. http://gmnetadmin.blogspot.com/2014/04/rainmeter-custom-desktop-skin.html

Setting up the computer to Autologin with LRS account.
