Executing Lync Dialog Listener service
This section describes how to execute the Lync Dialog Listener service.
The Lync SDN API Setup Wizard will install, configure and start the Lync Dialog Listener service. This service is configured by default with the automatic startup type. However, it is possible that the automatic startup may fail. For example, if the Windows Services window is not closed when the installation is run, the Lync Dialog Listener may not be started automatically.
You can use the Windows Services to verify if the Lync Dialog Listener service is indeed automatically started and, if not, reconfigure it to be started automatically and restarted it. The Windows Services panel also allows fixing any mistakes from providing an incorrect user or password for running this service.
Managing the Lync Dialog Listener service
Start the Windows Service application.
Search for the “Lync Dialog Listener” entry.
If Lync Dialog Listener is not already started, right-click the entry to select the Properties menu item. Click Start to restart the service and check Automatic in the Startup up option. Click OK after the service is restarted.
Verifying operations of Lync Dialog Listener service
To confirm that the installation is successful, do the following:
Verify that the LyncDialogListener.exe service has started.
After running the Lync SDN API Setup Wizard, you can confirm that the installation is successful by checking the LyncDiagnostics.log file and verifying that an entry analogous to the following line is logged in the log file.
2013-04-18T14:17:31.7693761-07:00[Info]Lync DialogListener Diagnostics Service started.
The log file is located in the directory specified during the setup. By default, this is the %temp% directory. You can change this value to a custom directory path by using the Lync SDN API Setup wizard during the installation or by editing the logging.config file after the installation.
