Sametime Meetings - Another reason not to use Internet Explorer


This is one of those things, that is just a pain in the arse really.  Kind of like the approach Microsoft takes to security of EXEs in email by not allowing them to be received by end users, if you use Screen Sharing and control in a Sametime Meeting that has been loaded from Internet Explorer, you can only control the keyboard and left mouse button within the Internet Explorer Session.

So you are trying to help a user solve a problem, but they're using IE on Vista, the minute you minimize IE to go change something you're screwed as you can no longer send left mouse clicks or keyboard commands.  Obviously this is a problem created by Microsoft, but IBM should maybe popup an information message that says hey you're using Vista, unless you change this setting you will only get limited screen sharing capabilities.

The technote for the solution is here:
