I tried conf and it said command unrecognized. I am not sure if netmeeting was removed.

I can't find a link on Microsoft's site to install it. It says it's not available for XP. Their site mentions Netmeeting Space which I can't find. I need to use netmeeting to connect to another netmeeting at work.

Is there anyone who packaged Netmeeting to be installed on demand on XP? I mean how do you get it back?

I had this exact same question a few years ago. +1 – Kurt W. Leucht Jul 30 '09 at 21:04

Netmeeting has been replaced with Microsoft Office Live Meeting

I need to connect with someone who has netmeeting so I need to get netmeeting working on my machine again. I don't want to use replacements or other remote software. Does Mircosoft Office Live work with netmeeting? – Tony_Henrich Jul 30 '09 at 19:11
As far as I know it doesn't. Microsoft retired Netmeeting some time ago. The only thing I can suggest is to try or use another application like Skype or even MSN Messenger – BinaryMisfit Jul 30 '09 at 19:27

Microsoft Netmeeting (will not install on XP


How about this:

  • Click Start, Run and type %Systemroot%\Inf
    • Locate the file named msnetmtg.inf (Note that it may display as just msnetmtg if the Folder options is set to hide the extensions)
  • Right-click the msnetmtg.inf file, and choose Install
  • When you're prompted for the Windows XP CD-ROM, do any of the following:
  • Point the installer to %Systemroot%\i386 or %Systemroot%\ServicePackFiles\i386 folders, whichever location has the latest version of system files.
  • Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the drive. Note that if you've a Service Pack installed, you need the slipstreamed XP CD. If you don't have one, use method 1 above.

I tried that already. It doesn't install on XP. If you look at the supported list of Windows, XP is not there. – Tony_Henrich Jul 30 '09 at 19:01
