Screen turns black when sharing with Office Communicator


  • In windows 7, during desktop sharing, the screen (of the PC that I have control of) turns black whenever I take an action that needs administrator's permission. For example, if I click on setup.exe of any file on the PC it asks for an admin ID and password to proceed. The screen turns black for me but the other person can see everything normal.

  • This is by design, user account control is doing this. If you wish to get by this, disable UAC on the windows 7 machine, or you will need to wait until the user on the other end accepts the admin permissions that are being elevated.

  • And even when the user accepts the admin permissions, you'll not be able to modify anything in that specific window if you have control. Apparantly this is a bug , check this topic.
