Microsoft Office Communicator chat history

Microsoft stinks, and his products are bloated with useless cosmetic features and lack essential stuff.

"Tools/View Conversation History" simply doesn't work here. This because the option "Save my instant message conversations in the Outlook Conversations History folder" (in tools/options) is disabled, and I don't have rights to enable it, even with a tweak in the Registry by setting IMAutoArchivingPolicy to 1.

Here is a tiny product that saves all chat history:
You should start it on Windows Startup.
