TAPI “Call Contact” in Outlook on Windows 7 with Lync Installed

When I installed Lync on my Windows 7 Laptop the Tapi dialing feature didn’t work anymore.
After some research I found a forum presenting the Solution – as so often it is only a question of adding a registry Key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Call Integration needs a DWORD called TAPIOVERRIDE with Value = 1

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Call Integration]

And off you go – after a short restart you can again Dial via TAPI from Outlook 2010!
