Lync for mac crash

After working for several months Lync for mac kept crashing on startup. No warning, no provocation, no survivors. The only way to stop the endless reporting is to uncheck the “restart Microsoft Lync” box.

Lync for mac Error

Upon further investigation I noticed a line in the console.

12/05/16 09:50:33,161 Microsoft Error Reporting[525]: 6   Microsoft Error Reporting           0x00003678 Microsoft Error Reporting + 9848
...
12/05/16 09:50:33,906 ReportCrash[526]: Saved crash report for EpocCamEngine[521] version 1.4 to /Users/Eric/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/EpocCamEngine_2016-05-12-095033_MacBook-Pro.crash

I remember installing EpocCam beta drivers and playing with it. This is done with a .pkg file I double click and let install. But how to uninstall? There seems to be no app for that, but a terminal statement.

pkgutil -—pkgs

Output contained the lines below.

...
com.kinoni.epoccam.EpocCamEngine.pkg
com.kinoni.epoccam.libavcodec.pkg
com.kinoni.epoccam.libavutil.pkg
com.kinoni.epoccam.libswscale.pkg
com.kinoni.epoccam.SoftVDigX.pkg
com.kinoni.epoccam.UninstallEpocCam.pkg
...

The last line (UninstallEpocCam) caught my attention. There was an app for uninstall?

uninstall epoccam with alfred

😳 All is well after this …
