.Net applications cannot be shared fully via Sametime Classic Meeting Screen Sharing

Technote (troubleshooting)


A third party application is started and the desktop will be shared in a Sametime Web Meeting. The main application window is shown. However, on doing a right-mouse click on the applications context menu, the context menu fails to display.

In other words, the context menu of the shared application is "not visible" for meeting attendees, during a web meeting using Desktop-Sharing.
Note: The context menu is only visible for the meeting chairperson.


While using a third party application during a Sametime Web Meeting using Desktop sharing, not all parts of the application were displayed into the Web meeting.


Known software defect with how Sametime Meeting Screen Sharing handles shared applications.
