FIX: Pause icon shown when Sharing in Lync session

May 18, 2012 Leave a comment

In a Lync meeting I setup yesterday, a presenter was unable to Share his program or desktop successfully – all attendees see is a large white pause icon in the upper left of a black screen. Turns out this problem can occur if the sharer is running Windows XP and the Terminal Services Windows Service is not running. The fix was to change the service’s startup option from Disabled to Manual and start it.

Thanks to Navin for the solution (here).
