Is there any live forum, site, etc for MS SharedView?

    Question

  • Seems all support, forums, etc for SharedView lead to closed threads or sites. Is there an active Forum somewhere?

  • I can confirm that SharedView is currently an active app, but there is no Microsoft support and the forum support was disabled/archived a couple years back.  The product team was disbanded and absorbed by other groups after shipping (primarily Communicator/Lync). Note that SharedView may be deactivated at some point as well - no firm date, but it is being considered.

  • It looks like sharedview forums have been set to read only a couple years back. This happens when a forum for a technology is stale or outdated: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-us/sharedviewbetahelp/threads

    My guess is that it isn't well supported any longer.

  • Not supported? That would be news since they havea  download site and have ot have a back end server to support the connections.

  • I didn't say 'not supported' I mentioned that 'my guess' is that it isn't well supported any longer. I'll try to find out today.

  • That's cool. I was in a bit of a mood after having to update from the Beta to the "release" in the first place since it no longer supports XP or at least won't install on XP out of the box then finding I can't find any active forum, blog or anything for the product.

  • SharedView or Mesh?  I don't think SharedView ever came out of beta.

  • See how ticked I am, confusing apps. Actually I was on the phone with a customer while trying to update this thread real fast and got the two crossed. Don't get me started on Mesh though ;)
