Technically Speaking All in on IT

I recently blogged about problems I was having getting Office Communicator installed in the latest build of Vista. After a couple more things went south on me ( a lot in part to trying to get the Cisco VPN Client to work) I went back to Windows XP SP2. If you can believe it (I have never seen this happen before) installing Virtual PC SP1 totally hosed my wireless networking adapter. I tried everything including removing the device, re-detecting it, re-installing the driver, etc. Finally I decided to uninstall Virtual PC and that went belly up as well. It never finished uninstalling and would just hang for hours. At that point I had little hope of getting my XP install back to the point where I would be happy with it. I had a system restore point, but something was prodding me to give Vista another shot.

This time I knew better than to even think about installing the Cisco VPN Client. I also disabled UAP via the registry as soon as I was logged in for the first time. And a side bonus was: Office Communicator installed and runs like a champ (as well as everything else so far)!

How did you technically disable UAP via the registry in Vista? Some of our users are on Vista and need Communicator. Can you give me a step-by-step version of the process to modify the UAP in the registry?
