Microsoft SharedView

leave a comment »

In case you’re wondering how to show your computer to others, try Microsoft SharedView. It is a free application available for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack (SP) 1, Vista Home Premium, Vista Ultimate, and Windows XP Service Pack 2. The only catches are that you must have a Windows Live ID (don’t worry, it’s free) to begin sharing your screen, and the “sharees” must download the program as well.

Once you’ve signed in with your WLID, the program gives you a set of instructions to send to the people you’d like to share with. After they have installed SharedView, the number of people will show up at the top of the screen. Then click the “Share” button and select what you want them to see.

Unfortunately, there is no audio support for the program right now. That means you have to make a telephone call or use a program like Skype.

There’s an example of a real-world application of the program here.

You can download the program at: www.tinyurl.com/MShareView
