As I wasn’t having my Lync Server 2010 iso handy, I googled for “Lync 2010 Client Download”. To my surprise, all links were pointing to Lync 2010 Server trial versions (which also has the client binaries) and forum questions about Lync.
I did find the client download in the “Related downloads” section in these pages and hence though of bookmarking the download links for my own personal reference. It may help someone to quickly find the client (atleast that’s the hope!).
Googling “Lync downlaods” returned the link that I was looking for, but only as the fourth one.
Bookmark this page for any Lync related downloads.
