[KB1197] Do I always need to start the application at the start of every meeting? (FAQ)

Short Description

If you choose the “zero installation” scenario, you indeed have to start the application every time you start using a ClickShare Button. For the rest of the meeting, you can simply click the Button to share your content or to remove it from the central screen. If you want to avoid starting up the application each meeting, you can choose to install a service on your laptop. You can find this starter service installer on the ClickShare drive as well. Once installed, this service runs in the background. Upon detecting a ClickShare Button being plugged in, it starts the ClickShare application automatically. Note that you will need administrator rights on the laptop to install this service.
