Start by looking in the help file to see if it's part of Win7..


In the good old days-> click Start, click Run, type conf.exe, and then click OK would launch it.

Netmeeting is long dead & buried. You'd have to use an other tool, such as Live Messenger, SkyDrive etc.

That is correct.
Vista doesn't even have NetMeeting.

No. I don't agree with you. I am using Vista SP1 Enterprise. It has Netmeeting, and our team always use it form sharing.

But for Windows 7, I heard there is a way for using Net Meeting. It may need to modify some file of the application by changing the Hex.

FYI from here ......
Quote:
As of Windows Vista, NetMeeting is no longer included with Microsoft Windows, and Microsoft recommends using newer applications such as Windows Meeting Space, Remote Desktop Connection, Remote Assistance, Windows Live Messenger and Microsoft Office Live Meeting in place of NetMeeting. Windows Meeting Space works only over peer-to-peer IPv6 local networks, not the internet, only has collaboration features and lacks NetMeeting's conferencing features, however Windows Live Messenger allows 1-to-1 audio-video conferencing. Live Meeting is a paid subscription/service-based offering that [1] includes multi-party conferencing features. For internet collaboration and screen sharing, Microsoft has also released SharedView as a separate download.

However, NetMeeting can still be installed and run on Windows Vista. A hotfix for Vista was published by Microsoft on March 22, 2007 [3]. Users can obtain this hotfix by contacting Microsoft Support. The hotfix contains an installer package to install NetMeeting 3.02 on Windows Vista Business, Enterprise or Ultimate editions. Version 3.02 is essentially a port of 3.01 to Windows Vista, however some features are not available in 3.02 such as remote desktop sharing invitations (incoming) and whiteboard area selection. [3] Microsoft has stated that the Vista compatible version is unsupported and is only meant as a transition tool to help support collaboration sessions when used with Windows XP-based computers.[3] NetMeeting 3.01 can also be installed under Windows Vista by setting the installer's compatibility level to NT4.[4]

The Windows Vista version of NetMeeting does not install and work properly on Windows 7. Windows Meeting Space has also been removed. Microsoft SharedView requires internet connectivity, it does not work only over a local LAN.
