Lync 2013 Logging Tool

Lync 2013 Public Preview still contained the well known Lync Logging Tool (with the need to install Snooper via Resource Kit Tools to be able to decode logs).

After installing there is still no program manager link to these tools but they can be found at:


Starting OCSLogger.exe brings the usual logging experience:
