    Great post, but why use hotfile? It won’t allow me to download all the files. Why not just use Dropbox or Drive? Could you post a link to download all files at once?

    Shit doesn’t work at all! Have installed the USB Drivers ages ago already.

    Downloaded & INstalled both APK”s & the files inside the zip package. Didn’t update the program to avoid it from not starting again.

    I start the program on my Windows 7 PC & Run the App on my S3. Try to login in the PC Program and it starts nagging about the fact there is no device found registered under the email adress???

    Hi All, have tried to the letter but no joy. Simple says that the model of computer and/or operating system are not supported.

    Is there any additional Samsung account needed? I have the same problems:
    1)My device associated email adress is not accepted, the Windows Application could not find the device.
    2) I better do not run the update, because after that, the app would not start running.

    What is this all about? The alternative app idea is great! I really want to use it, must be awesome and I really look forward to it!
    Please do I need an additional accounts anywhere? Could the app be fixed in near future?

    If you go to the folder where the files for the pc software are kept and delete the update .exe after you install and before you open the program, it doesn’t run the update.

    I can get the program to start then but can’t log on as it doesn’t recognise any of my email addresses. What to do?

    It worked fine when I first installed it. Now, it does everything but accept keyboard input. Everytime I try the keyboard, a message pops up to turn on keyboard and mouse sharing – which is on. It’s cockpit error, but I can’t figure it out. Any suggestions?

    Mine worked fine. And it still works except for the external keyboard. Whenever I try to type something, I get the message that Keyboard and Mouse Sharing must be turned on. They are turned on. Any ideas on what to do?

    Hi, i’m having a problem.
    All installed as required, but when i open the “Phone Screen Sharing” on PC, it asks me for e-mail. I used my Samsung account e-mail, but it’s telling me “Could not find the devide registered under this email”
    How to solve it?

    If I don’t run updates, it connects fine, but then asks for e-mail. After e-mail entered, I get response “Could not find the device registered under this email”. Simply can’t get past that point.

    If allowed to run updates, the program doesn’t open when clicked on.

    I’m on an ASUS Windows 64x bit Windows 7 Pro and trying to connect Galaxy S4 Zoom.

    Hope you can help. Looks like great work’s been done so far.

    Do you have any alternate download links for these files? I hate hotfile with a passion, not gonna pay just to be able to download more than 1 file per hour…

    Same issue…will not run after first run update. If you’re going to post this then you need to show some support for the community by letting us know more details on how to get this to work with proper install instructions.

    I have S3 and Windows 7. After installing both the APK files and the software onto my PC I am unable to make this work. When you run the software on the PC the software checks for updates and then no longer works when you try and launch the program on pc. Do I need both the Samsung app and the screen share APK on my phone? Is there a registration process for the email address used when running the software on your PC for the first time?

    • S4ui

      July 30, 2013 at 7:17 pm

      Clarification: Both APK files are installed on my phone and the screen share software is installed on my pc.

    It doesn’t work either. Using a Toshiba NB with Win8 and a SGS4.
    I went trough the decribed steps several time, no success.

    The pro lies on the notebook. I cant start Phone Screen Sharing only if I do not run the automatic update. If I run it, the Phone Screen Sharing can’t be startet anymore.

    However Without the update, I can start Phone Screen Sharing and I’m asked for an emailaddress. But what for? Which address? No idea.I found other users in german blog having the same probs but no solution.

    Any hints?

            Hi Amit,

            I have watched your video and has done the following:

            – Installed the USB Driver
            -Install the the screenshare APK in my phone.
            -Turned on the developer option and turn on USB debugging
            -Download and install the Phone Screen Sharing Tool

            The problem I am facing is on the PC. After I toen on the Phne Screen sharing app, it ask me to update the app. I click OK. After it update finish, the app is not able to launch any more.

            I try not updating, it ask me for an email address. I keyed in my email address but return as a device not register.

            Could you advice?
