Getting Started Using Unified Communications Client API

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

This section discusses the requirements and some common programming tasks associated with Unified Communications Client API. These include creating a new application project, registering with an Office Communications Server instance, registering for API events, and handling raised events. For information about Unified Communications Client API interfaces and enumerations, see API Object Models.

Before you start, ensure the following requirements are met:

  • Microsoft Office Communications Server is installed on the server side of all Unified Communications Client API clients.
  • An audio/video (A/V) multipoint control unit (MCU) is installed on Office Communications Server if the client uses the A/V conferencing feature.
  • Media Relay is enabled on Office Communications Server if the client connects to the server from behind a firewall.
  • Microsoft Windows XP (Gold, SP1, or SP2), Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 is installed on a client computer.
  • Microsoft DirectX 9.0 is installed on the client computer.
  • Microsoft C Run-Time Library (MSVCM80.DLL or MSVCM90.DLL in Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5) is installed on a client computer.
  • The Unified Communications Client API binaries, UccApi.dll, rtmpltfm.dll, UCCAPIRES.dll, and the primary interoperable assembly, Microsoft.Office.Interop.UccApi.Dll, are installed on a client computer. By default, the UccApiSdk.msi package installs these libraries in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft UccAPI directory.
  • A client must create an application manifest if it references the UccAPI.dll as a private assembly. To view the instructions, see Create an Application Manifest to Reference a Private Copy of UccAPI.Dll.
