Join Skype Meeting links no longer work with my Skype for Business

Super User Asked by Hack-R on September 2, 2020

I have Skype for Business on Windows 7. For a long time I’ve always been able to click these “Join Skype Meeting” links in e-mails and calendar appointments from co-workers.

Starting last week these quit working for me. No changes have been made to my Skype or Outlook/Office. It keeps directing me to some Microsoft/Skype webpage that wants me to download the meetings plugin. I already had that, but I tried re-installing it several times to no avail.

I can still join meetings if someone directly adds me or if I click the button in “Join Lync Meeting” button in Outlook (which is weird because neither I nor anyone else is still using Lync… we upgraded to Skype for Business a year ago). The “Join Online Meeting” button also does not work.

Apparently it has something to do with NPAPI. The quick fix is to change the default browser to IE. There is a longer fix that lets you keep your regular browser. Here is info from MicroSoft on the matter.

I had a similar problem with a user. What fixed it for us was removing the Skype/Lync add-in (File > Options > Add-Ins > Go) then adding it back in (UCAddin.dll). Once it was added back in and enabled, the Skype/Lync functions worked correctly again. We actually had to remove the add-in and re-add it -- merely disabling and re-enabling it didn't fix the problem.
