Office Communicator Custom Status Editor v1.5.3 Released!

This releases address the issue where it would not run unless as an administrator. The problem is it modifies the system registry, and places files for communicator to find which require elevated privileges.

If you had User Access Control (UAC) enabled on Vista or 7, the program wouldn’t work as expected. Now it’s fixed, so permission is requested properly.

Also, I threw together a portable version of Office Communicator Custom Status Editor so an installer is no longer needed. This weighs in at less than 35kb.

Hope it helps another couple of thousand people have custom status or custom presences on Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2.

Communicator Status Editor Update: Offline support!

Office Communicator Status Editor v1.5.2

Along with updating the website, I’ve updated the Office Communicator Custom Status Editor to now work offline.

Previously, if you didn’t have internet access when starting up Communicator, the custom statuses would have failed. Now that’s now longer a problem.

That’s the only new feature of the program, but it’s a biggy – Also included now is a better installer and a slightly improved UI.
