Beginning with ZCS 9.0.0 the Zimbra Connector for Outlook (ZCO) provides a new way to obtain Free/Busy information: the Zimbra Free/Busy Provider.

During the introduction period of this new feature, ZCO will continue to use Internet Free/Busy by default.

This guide shows you how to create a custom Windows Installer (.msi) that will install and enable the Zimbra FB Provider during ZCO installation.
