NetMeeting for WinXP?

What happened to NetMeeting for Windows XP? I used to have it on my Win2k machine, but when our network admins upgraded my mahince, that software went out the window.

If you visit the Netmeeting website, it makes no mention of using it with XP.

Help.

Hm... wonder if this has anything to do with the recent purchase of LiveWire.

I doubt it since XP was release a while back. Windows 2003 is the same.

One more thing -- is there a way to automatically share a desktop? I read the help file, and it tells me to right click on the NetMeeting icon and go to something like 'Advanced NetMeeting Properties' which is not available.

Click on Tools --> Remote Desktop Sharing --> go thru the wizard --> right-click on the Netmeeting systray and click on Activate Remote Desktop Sharing.

I think MS is trying to hide Netmeeting and push Remote Desktop to the foreground....with good reason!

Remote Desktop is great but Microsoft Office products and some other software will not install under Remote Desktop or Terminal Server. It will require a console logon. This is when a remote control software like NetMeeting will come in handy.

Remote Desktop Sharing is greyed out. It could have been by our NetAdmins, but I have no idea.

Suggestions??
