Why do I need to install the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Presenter Add-in?
You must install the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Presenter Add-in to let others view your
desktop, a document, or an application on your computer.
Installing the add-in also lets you see pop-up notifiers that the system displays when the share pod is
shown in full screen mode and chat messages that would otherwise be hidden. In general, the web
meeting room displays best if you have installed the add-in, even if you are not sharing content from
your computer.
The first time you share your desktop, a document, or an application, the system prompts you to install
the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Presenter Add-in. For other ways to install the add-in, see the
online help in the web meeting room.
What happens if I click “Yes”?
If you select Yes, the system installs the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Presenter Add-in on your
computer and you reenter the web meeting room using the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express
Presenter Add-in. If you were previously trying to select a feature that required the add-in, you need to
select the feature again when you reenter the meeting room.

Will the prompt to install the add-in appear every time I share my screen?
No. After you install the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Presenter Add-in, you do not need to
install it again to let others view content on your computer.
What can I do if my installation fails?
