How to Set Up Live Meeting

By Diana LaRose

Microsoft Office Live Meeting is an application used to conduct Web conferences, in which individuals located remotely can participate in meetings via the Internet. Meeting participants generally speak to each other by telephone and can view the same desktop, presentation or other media on their personal computers. Live Meeting client software is available free of charge from the Microsoft website. You can also install Live Meeting by clicking on "Join the Meeting" in an email invitation to a Live Meeting Web conference.

Step 1

Click on "Start," "All Programs" then "Microsoft Office Live Meeting."

Step 2

Select the down arrow next to the orange button in the upper-left corner of the "Microsoft Office Live Meeting" window. Click on "Open User Accounts."

Step 3
