Joining a Meeting

You can join a meeting directly from the e-mail invitation. The invitation contains a Join the meeting link that automatically starts the Microsoft Office Live Meeting client and connects you to the meeting. If this is the first time you are joining a meeting, you may need to install the Microsoft Office Live Meeting client before you can join.

Tip: Before you join a meeting for the first time, you can check whether the Microsoft Office Live Meeting client is installed on your computer by clicking Start, clicking All Programs, and then looking in the program list for Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007. If this program appears in the list, the meeting client is installed. If the program does not appear, use the links listed under First-Time Users in the e-mail invitation to install the meeting client.

If you cannot install the Microsoft Office Live Meeting client on your computer, you can still join the meeting if the Use Web Console link appears on the client installation page. The Live Meeting Web-based client connects you to the meeting by using your Web browser. You can still attend the meeting, but there are some limitations. The Use Web Console option is available only in meetings scheduled with the Microsoft Office Live Meeting service.

ShowTo join a meeting

    • In your e-mail Inbox, open the meeting invitation.
