    • Thank you Matt for this nice tool. 
      I have one question:
      Why does it send (E-Mail from current opened Outlook Mailbox) the Domains of the contacts to mattmlandis at gmail.com with the subject lync federation directory domain submission without ask for authorization?
    • There is a checkmark (step 2) to avoid helping the community if you don't want to. Thanks!
  • Can I scan a CSV list of domains?

    • I'm trying to increase adoption of Lync in my company. It would be great if I could scan a list of domains from our CRM system to see who can federate. (We could then present this info back internally so people knew who was Lync-able.) Is this possible either here or elsewhere?
    • that is a great idea , we will put on our list.

    • Glad you liked the presentation.
      Do you know what OS and Outlook version this is on?
      Also, i have some info on AOL federation going forward if you are interested i would be glad to connect you. 
    • Win7 Enterprise N x64 (v6.1.7601 SP1). Office 2013 x86 (v15.0.4505.1509) Lync v15.0.4481.10004505.1002.
    • Peter,
      Hmm, just tested on Win7 64x and Outlook 2013 over lunch. (Lync not a depency) Seems to work here. 
      Someone else said they need to install from c:\ then it worked. Perhap give that a go? (for me it works installing from any dir)
  • Won't Scan on Windows 8 Pro
    3 Posts | Last post April 01, 2013
    • When I run the app on Windows 8 it starts but when you select "Scan" I get an error: Unable to cast COM object of type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.ApplicationClass' to interface type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Application'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{00063001-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}' failed duet the following error: Library not registered.(Exception from HRESULT:0x8002801D (TYPE_E_LIBNOTREGISTERED)).
    • Appears like it is not compatible with Win8. We will need to take a look at that.
    • I have Windows 8(x64), Outlook 2013(x32), Exchange 2010. This utility works great!   Thanks Matt
  • What does L mean

    • Hi Matt
      Great program which i am using to put the case for Lync implementation into one of my clients however i may be missing something as i cant work out what L column is for, it shows small black marks against some names and none against others can you please explain??
    • items with a mark in the L column are domains that are not yet in the WCFTool database. 
      thanks for using the tool.
  • No results are shown

    • Hi Mattis,
      Great tool but i cant see the results.its empty but it says contacts scanned: 16
    • That is the number of contacts that are scanned for federation (i.e. number of contacts in your contact list), but not the "Hits:" of federated contacts (and associated list).
  • No Contacts

    • I installed the tool on a Windows 8 PC running Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2010, but I don't see any contacts or suggested contacts

    • Hi,
      I am getting "Unspecified error (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004005 (E_FAIL))" when trying to scan. Started app as administrator, Windows 7, Outlook 2010 chached mode.
    • Can you try when not cached and see if that makes any difference?
