Unable to View a Shared Desktop or Application in a Microsoft Lync 2013 Meeting

Recently while using Microsoft Lync 2013 to view a shared desktop or application in a meeting, I experienced an issue where I could only see a blank white screen as shown in the image below: Event ID 301, Microsoft Office 15 Alerts was logged in the event log with the following details: Microsoft Lync CLSID: {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} CATID: {9B179D6E-9BDB-454b-BE3D-89F9A792BD39} The ActiveX Compatibility setting disabled loading this object to help protect your security.
