[Workaround] Skype for Business 2016 has stopped working (Crash) on First Start

Office 2016 Pro (with the new Skype for Business 2016, Sfbc) and above is installed on a shiny new Windows 10 Pro machine with the US English (en-us) locale. When the Sfbc 2016 application is started for the first time, you hit Accept at the prompt:

First things first.

This product also comes with Office Automatic Updates. Learn more.
[ Accept]

This resulted in the error:

Skype for Business has stopped working.

Windows is checking for a solution to the problem…

followed by:

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

[ Debug ] [ Close program ]

One workaround is to initially start another application such as Word or Excel in the Office 2016 Pro suite and click on Accept to dismiss the “First things first” prompt. Subsequent execution of the Skype for Business 2016 desktop client should then start correctly by itself.

Speaker @ Microsoft Evolution Day 2015 (Do/Thu Oct 29 – Zurich)

Mit 41 Break-out Sessions in 8 unterschiedlichen haupt Themen von Office 365/Azure, System Center, Windows 10, Server Infrastructure/Automation, SQL, Virtualisierung bis zum Entwirklung, bietet der dieses Jahres stattfindenden Microsoft Evolution Day 2015 sicher etwas für Sie vor Ort (on-premises) bis in die Cloud an.

Ich freue mich als Speaker* das folgende Thema vermitteln zu dürfen:

Skype für Business: Migration, Upgrade, Koexistenz und Interoperabilität («ME1533»)

Der Nachfolger von Lync Server 2013 steht vor der Tür. Ein erfolgreicher Einstieg in die jüngste Version kann umfangreiche Planung, Zeit und Aufwände fordern. Was noch als «supported» zählt oder in der Praxis tatsächlich weiterhin funktioniert, bleibt unklar. Nicht mit dieser Session! Von der Vorbereitung der Kern-Server und Backend-Infrastruktur über die unterschiedlichen Lync-Client-Versionen bis hin zu Extern- und Telefonie-Integration helfen wir Ihnen, den Wald auch bei den vielen Bäumen nicht aus den Augen zu verlieren.

Nutzen Sie diese tolle Gelegenheit, praxisnahe Anleitungen und Erfahrungsberichte unserer Referenten, die für Sie sowohl in der strategischen Planung als auch in der praktischen Anwendung von grossem Nutzen sein werden, davon zu profitieren und mit Fachleuten zu vernetzen.

Mehr Information über den Event und Anmeldung finden Sie hier.

TIP 1520A: Skype for Business Centralized Logging – User Not Authorized

You start with elevated administrative privileges the latest version of Skype for Business Server 2015, Logging Tool (v6.0.9319.73 released 29 July 2015) and are login as a Sfbs Administrator with CSAdministrator membership on a Skype Front-End Server.

When you attempt to “Start Logging” after having selected the desired “Scenarios” and machines under “Topology”, the following error shows up:

Error: User domain\skypeadmin is not authorized to view or change logging OR this pool and computers are not valid. Pools or Computers – s01.domain.name,s01.domain.name.

In an environment supporting multiple server versions of Lync/Skype, verify that the machines picked under “Topology” are running Lync Server 2013 and higher as the Centralized Logging feature was only first introduced in Lync Server 2013.

TIP 1519: Skype for Business 2015 Debugging Tools and VC++ 2013 Runtime

Attempts to install Skype for Business 2015 Debugging Tools* on an administrative workstation or server running a supported Windows OS may fail with the error:

Skype for Business 2015, Debugging Tools installation or uninstallation requires that Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 x64 Minimum Runtime – 12.0.21005 Package is already installed. Either use Setup.exe for installation or run vcredist_x64.exe included with the product to install the redistributable.
[ OK ]

You can either ensure that …

… the target machine has completed running setup.exe from the Skype for Business Server 2015 media, which includes the prerequisite VC++ 2013 runtime that you must install anyway, or install from a downloadable copy of the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013#.

Note that unlike in Lync Server 2013, a “Lync-specific” version of the latter does not appear to be a requirement.
