Windows 7: Netmeeting replacement in Windows 7

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

The only thing I was disappointed about is you can't use your web cam or speakers. Oh well, good enough...

(test was ran on a Windows 7 box and a Windows XP box)
I guess I'm going to have to give another try. One difference is we are both on XP workstations, but don't think that would be an issue (but you never know). It was probably something that I did wrong on the outset, but I thought I followed the instructions "to the letter".

With Netmeeting you get a view of the users desktop watching WHAT THE REMOTE USER IS DOING.

It's as if you are standing in front of the rtemote users screen watching what they are doing.

Netmeeting does however allow you to "Take over" the remote desktop as well BTW.

The two programs are for very different purposes.

Ah, thanks jimbo for that clear cut explanation :)

Another difference between NetMeeting and SharedView:

Microsoft collects information generated from the meeting participants’ Service client software, including files and other content shared during this session, as well as information about meeting participants. We store handout files until the end of the meeting, but otherwise do not normally log any content. This information, however, may be viewed by other invited meeting participants during the meeting, and the name and account name you provide will be displayed to all other meeting participants.
I figure this is common for most of the online desktop sharing services, but I believe that NetMeeting is more P2P in how it shares data among participants.

As far as I know, Netmeeting didn't do any data collection, but then I never really checked.

BTW, I finally did get SharedView to work but it was slow compared to Netmeeting, or at least on our LAN and with our setup.

Windows 7

Hi guys,

Currently I'm in the same boat as MMyoung.

I use netmeeting as aid to solve problems since most issues can be resolved by "driving the boat" as it is said. I've not heard of this PEBKAC error... but ID10T errors are quite rampant. That being said, we are planning to upgrade to Windows 7 in the later half of 2010 and need a new application to cater to this need.

I have read along and tried Shared view. My opinion of Shared view, like has already been said, is that it is too slow on the network, it requires a live ID and only the person that starts the session can share their desktop (what I have found in my testing). So besides the slow factor, the killer is that I would not create Live id's for every user I help.

Other options I have thought of include:
- Microsoft Live meeting, which requires a server or session like Shared view to run off of, is slow, from what I can tell is just like shared view.
- Ultra VNC (or any VNC viewer). Good to use, fairly fast but not all people can find the IP address of a roaming laptop.

Any other options or opinions as of late?

Netmeeting in W7

To me the lack of netmeeting is a problem. I use it to do remote support on W2K boxes that I still support. I'll have to get physical access to change them to WinVNC. Why doe s MS insist on making more work for people that do tech support. Is MS willing to pay for all the work they cause?

Im just passing and I havent read the entire thread, so apologies if Im reposting old info.

If any of you guys use SCCM, then configuration manager comes with a tool similar to what you require, called 'Configuration Manager 2007 Remote Control'
Its a file called rc.exe.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
What happened to NetMeeting?

This refers to Windows Meeting Space which is the replacement -- BUT

Doesn't exist on my PC -- Windows 7 X-64 Enterprise or at least I can't find it.

The link is for VISTA it seems

For Windows 7 it's now Microsoft Office Live Meeting (seems also to be a CHARGEABLE feature too)

Windows 7

You can still use netmeeting right from windows 7. Just use XP mode and netmeeting is already installed! It is two downloads (VPC and XP mode) instead of one but you have already spent more time on it trying to get the vista version to run. Hope that helps!
