Hi !

I am working Client Server windows application (language lab) ,Sever(Teacher PC), and Client (Student PC). I want to capture screen shots of student PC and save it on Sever(teacher PC) without using share folder.

How I can do this !

Please help me

Assuming you have the Client and Server applications talking to each other (and if you don't you have bigger problems than screen shot transfers), then just take a copy of the Client screen with the client application, convert it to an image of some type, and send it to the server via the existing communications link.

Which part of that is giving you problems?

Very generally, yes, my 5.
In more practical variants and detail -- please see my answer.
I already answered nearly the same question. (What, is that the school assignment, the same one for a group of students?!)

Basically, there are some variants: 1) custom Windows Service on each student's computer, 2) simple HTTP server on each student's computer, 3) some available HTTP server with Web application on each student's computer. In cases (2) and (3) the teacher's UI could be just an available Web browser!

For more detail, please see my answers here:
Remote Screen Capture in WPF[^],
Multiple Remote Screen Viewer in wcf / wpf and c#[^].

Note: It does not have to be WPF.

Thank you, Monjurul.
Wouldn't it be better to create a multi user shared desktop?

I guess you could alter/enhance this software[^].

I guess that could be the ultimate "virtual teacher", or support tool :)

Best regards

This is another option (not sure which one is more practical though), my 5.
