What are lync.exe Error Messages?


lync.exe Runtime Errors

Runtime errors are Office errors that occur during "runtime". Runtime is pretty self-explanatory; it means that these EXE errors are triggered when lync.exe is attempted to be loaded either when Office is starting up, or in some cases already running. Runtime errors are the most common form of EXE error you will encounter using Office.

In most cases, lync.exe runtime errors occurring while the program is running will result in the program terminating abnormally. Most of these lync.exe error messages mean that Office was either unable to locate this file on startup, or the file is corrupt, resulting in a prematurely-aborted startup process. Generally, Office will be unable to start without resolving these errors.

Some of the most common lync.exe errors include:

  • lync.exe - Bad Image.
  • lync.exe Application Error.
  • lync.exe could not be found.
  • lync.exe could not be installed.
  • lync.exe could not be launched. Class not registered.
  • lync.exe could not be started.
  • lync.exe failed to initialize properly.
  • lync.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
  • lync.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
  • lync.exe is not running.
  • Cannot find lync.exe.
  • Error starting program: lync.exe.
  • Faulting Application Path: lync.exe.
  • The file lync.exe is missing or corrupt.
  • Windows failed to start - lync.exe.
System Error


The program can’t start because lync.exe is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

Finding the source of the lync.exe error is key to properly resolving these errors. Although most of these EXE errors affecting lync.exe will happen during startup, occasionally you will encounter a runtime error while using Microsoft Office 2013. This can occur due to poor programming on behalf of Microsoft Corporation, conflicts with other software or 3rd-party plug-ins, or caused by damaged and outdated hardware. Also, these types of lync.exe errors can occur if it has been accidentally moved, deleted, or corrupted by a malware infection. Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.



How to Fix lync.exe Errors in 3 Steps (Time to complete: ~5-15 minutes)

If you're encountering one of the error messages above, follow these troubleshooting steps to resolve your lync.exe issue. These troubleshooting steps are listed in the recommended order of execution.


Step 1: Restore your PC back to the latest restore point, "snapshot", or backup image before error occurred.

Step 3: Perform a Windows Update.

When the first two steps haven't solved your issue, it might be a good idea to run Windows Update. Many lync.exe error messages that are encountered can be contributed to an outdated Windows Operating System. To run Windows Update, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Hit the Windows Start button

  5. After the update is completed, restart your PC.

If Windows Update failed to resolve the lync.exe error message, please proceed to next step. Please note that this final step is recommended for advanced PC users only.



If Those Steps Fail: Download and Replace Your lync.exe File (Caution: Advanced)

GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve lync.exe problems. To avoid data loss, you must be sure that you have backed-up all of your important documents, pictures, software installers, and other personal data before beginning the process. If you are not currently backing up your data, you need to do so immediately.



Download lync.exe Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)


CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying lync.exe to your appropriate Windows system directory. Microsoft typically does not release Office EXE files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing lync.exe and all other EXE files for Office. An incorrectly installed EXE file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
