If you want to use a SharePoint Promoted Links in your web site, Promoted Links App should be added first in to the site.

Click on “Add an app” option in SharePoint Online menu.

Click on “Promoted Links” tile in “Apps you can add” section. Give it a name for the new Promoted Link list and hit create.

This will create a new Promoted Links list and you can find it in “Site Contents” area.

We are seeing an increasing number of reports from customers who are using I-phones and have recently updated to IOS 11, that are unable to call businesses who have Avaya and or Cisco CPE’s. Below is a short non-technical description, in my words and a fix that can be implemented on customer CPE’s.

1. It appears that the data packet size has changed in the new upgrade and it appears that there is larger header information in those packets now.
2. This larger packet size is unreadable for Avaya phone systems that are using UDP (undefined Protocol) as they are not being able to put the packets back together upon receiving them.

The Fix is to change the CPE/Phone system to use TCP instead of UDP. Once done, regardless of the 4G or 3G setting, calls should work.

There is a tool already in windows which can be used per below

sc.exe create “service name” binpath= “path\to\.exe” start= auto

However, only programs designed to implement ServiceMain can be run as a service with sc.exe. You might get 1053 Errors when creating services with above , if so you’ll need something like



Paid For 

  • FireDaemon
  • AlwaysUp

to run any arbitrary .exe as a service.

It is possible to disable certain autodiscover steps by creating DWORD entries in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<version>\Outlook\AutoDiscover registry key.

Note. <version> can be 16.0 for Outlook 2016, 15.0 for Outlook 2013 and 14.0 for Outlook 2010.

The following DWORD entries can be created:

  • ExcludeHttpRedirect
  • ExcludeHttpsAutoDiscoverDomain
  • ExcludeHttpsRootDomain
  • ExcludeScpLookup
  • ExcludeSrvRecord
  • ExcludeLastKnownGoodURL (Outlook 2010 version 14.0.7140.5001 and later)
  • ExcludeExplicitO365Endpoint (Outlook 2016 version 16.0.6741.2017 and later)

Add the DWord of 1 to any of the above to skip the check

Per here
