How to detect what application is starting screenshareserver.exe process?

We are unable to share screen when using Cisco Jabber 10.6 in one part of our company. This has been tracked down to a conflict with a ScreenShareServer.exe process seen running in task manager.

Does anyone know what application kicks off this process, or how I can find out? The process has already started when a user logs in (ie not initiated from the user selecting any app) and killing the process does allow Jabber screen sharing to work.

PC's are all Windows 7 Pro

Thanks in advance.

A quick search through Google indicates that this is part of a package called Easy Screen Share.

It appears to be "lightly supported" through third-party software sharing sites and its home site appears to be Sourceforge.

Addendum:  If this is indeed the culprit, imo there are better remote access programs.

Thanks DrKlahn,
I suspect that this may be part of screen recording software that has been installed on the affected PC's and would like to prove that. The screen recording software has recently ben replaced so if so I'd like to track down to old/new software.

Hi agradmin,

Did you try using Autoruns from Microsoft Sysinternals to check what programs are getting started when a PC is rebooting.

if you would have any issues determining or working with it, you could port the autoruns file for further analysis.

Although autoruns did not directly tell me where the ScreenShareServer.exe process is initiated it did allow me to discount possibilities and lead me to an acceptable solution (ie part of the Cisco AQM_WFO recording system).

Thanks for your help Sudeep.
