When Microsoft Lync 2010 Group Chat is not the primary instant messaging (IM) and presence client and is running side-by-side with Microsoft Lync 2010, Lync 2010 Group Chat will not violate the Lync 2010 presence privacy mode.

Presence privacy mode works with Group Chat as follows:

You must run Group Chat on the same computer as Lync 2010 for them to work side-by-side in presence privacy mode.

You can run Group Chat without Lync 2010 and still run Lync 2010 in presence privacy mode on another computer, as long as you keep IM disabled on the computer running Group Chat. We do not recommend this scenario.
