A Fix for the Lync 2010 Control Panel Crash Issue on VMWare

For those living with the annoying issue of the Lync Server 2010 Control Panel crashing on a VMWare image, a fix has quietly been released in the form of a new update to Silverlight (which was the underlying cause).

The original issue was caused by a Silverlight 5.x update (specifically Silverlight 5.1.10411.0) and the only workaround was to rollback to Silverlight 4.x. This was annoying when updates applied to the image re-upgraded Silverlight to the 5.1 version and the issue surfaced again.

On March 12, 2013 Microsoft released an update to Silverlight 5: see MS13-022: Vulnerability in Silverlight could allow remote code execution.

This updates Silverlight to be 5.1.20125.0 and has resolved the issue in my lab.

I became aware of this fix in the VMWare community thread posting that described the issue.
