As part of the recent KLZ upgrades, the instant messaging software was changed to Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007.
This new service no longer works with the old Office Communicator 2005 client software for LCS (Live Communications Server) and therefore requires a new client, Microsoft Office Communicator 2007.If you have purchased Office 2007 Professional Plus or Enterprise under a Select or School Agreement, then the software is included. If you do not have a copy of the software you can purchase an OCS Client CD from Civica for £18.37 or with proof of purchase supplied to EIS, we can supply a copy of the software*.The software can also be evaluated here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=7F5AB627-2D34-470D-9393-8B3EDE6FE3C4&displaylang=enThe software is available to buy separately from Civica Services for £1.98 on Select.
