    @Kari, I just installed a Hyper V win 10 OS in my 8.1. Can I attend the session to learn more, even though I'm running it in 8.1?

    Yes, of course. The Hyper-V in consumer versions of Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10, both Pro and Enterprise editions is the same and functions in the same way.

    For those not familiar with Skype for Business (former Lync) Online Meetings, here's a quick guide:

    1. Click the meeting link (it will be posted in this thread on the day of the meeting)

    2. If you have Skype for Business (Lync) desktop installed and you want to use your organisational Lync Account, simply click Launch Application if the dialog is presented. It will only be presented if Skype for Business (Lync) is installed. Please notice that in this case your real name (name you use for the organisational account) will be shown, along with the avatar and the contact details you have set to be shared

    3. If you have no Lync account from your organization or would for any reason rather use the Lync Web App, click Do Nothing and click Join Using Lync Web App instead. Using the web app option let's you use any name you want to. IF you are a Ten Forums member please use your forum username:

    4. Install the Lync Web App plug-in for your browser (screenshots from Chrome), it takes a few seconds, and when done click Join the meeting:

    7. If you want to hear me and possibly talk by yourself, select Using my computer in Join Meeting Audio dialog (#1 in screenshot below). Open the Chat window (#2) and list of participants (#3)

    8. You are done, takes less than a minute.

    Looks complicated, is really easy :). I will put the meeting online two hours before the start time for you to test the connectivity. Please notice that the audio works best using Internet Explorer, Spartan, Chrome or Opera browsers. Latest versions of Firefox and Maxthon might have issues in getting the audio stream.

    See you soon! Starting time in your local time here: Event Time Announcer - Hyper-V 101 - The Basics @ TenForums.com
