Share screen dialogue pops up after sharing a window directly using "hDirectShareAppWnd"

I’m trying to share a window directly along with the start of the application.
I tried to use “hDirectShareAppWnd” (Windows SDK API Reference: tagStartParam4WithoutLogin Struct Reference). The required window is being shared when the meeting starts. However, along with it the Share screen dialogue also pops up and it asks me to select a window to share.

I want to hide the select window pop up.

Any guidance would be helpful. :slight_smile:

We are following the same steps as mentioned in the above post.
The required window is shared directly as expected when the meeting starts. However, there is another window which says “Select a window or an application that you want to share” which pops up.

I want to hide that window because the window I want to share is already being shared.

In the above image, the “scripts” window is being shared directly as expected when the meeting starts. But, we still get the “Select a window or an application that you want to share” dialogue box.
