ClickShare Desktop App is a software client for Windows and Mac computers. This app gives you more flexibility and a new way of sharing your content. You can easily connect and share content in a meeting room. Simply download and install the app without administrator rights, connect to a meeting room in your vicinity, and share your content with one click.
ClickShare Desktop App works with all the ClickShare Base Units: CX/C series with firmware version 2.10 or higher, CS(E)-series with firmware version 1.07 or higher and CSC-1/CSM-1 when used in combination with a ClickShare Button. It works perfectly together and in sync with the ClickShare Button.

Installing ClickShare Desktop App:

To install, simply double-click the ClickShare_Setup file and follow the on-screen instructions.

To install the MSI package of the ClickShare Desktop App (how to: see KB 8156 for version 4.28 and higher and KB 2531 for version 4.27.2 and below). The installation of the MSI package is recommended for large-scale deployments or for organizations where users are not allowed to install any software on their computers.
Alternatively, Microsoft SCCM can also be used to deploy MSI package (how to: see KB 2190).

Note: By default, the ClickShare Desktop App updates itself if it is already installed on your laptop.

Using ClickShare Desktop App:

  • Sharing content from your laptop to the meeting room display (how to: see KB 2607).
  • Advanced sharing: This feature allows you to work separately on your laptop while being sharing your content to the meeting room display at the same time.
    • Sharing a specific window or application (how to: see KB 2384).
    • View speaker notes on your laptop while sharing slides on the meeting room display (how to: see KB 2386).  
  • Extended desktop: This function creates a virtual second desktop for you which will then be shared. As such, the meeting room display becomes a second screen to your personal computer, for details see KB 2588 for details.
  • Wireless conferencing with ClickShare Desktop App i.e. Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) to any ClickShare Conference enabled meeting room, see KB 2073 for details.
