How Do I Run/Remove/Reinstall Netmeeting

How Do I Run Netmeeting

To the untrained eye Netmeeting is not readily visible in Windows XP. The reason for this is that, by default, it is not listed on the All Programs Menu. Instead it is actually hidden from view. To initialise the netmeeting installation do the following:

1/ Click the Start Button

2/ Click Run

3/ In the Run dialog box type conf

4/ Netmeeting should now open

5/ All you need do now is setup your contact details, video and microphone

How Do I remove Netmeeting

Not everyone uses Netmeeting, so for those who have no intension of ever using it here are the instructions for removing it.

1/ Click the Start button

2/ On the Start menu click Run

3/ In the Run dialog box type: RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection C:\WINDOWS\inf\msnetmtg.inf,NetMtg.Remove (It is better to copy and paste this command into the Run dialogue box)

4/ Press the OK button

5/ Netmeeting should now be removed from your system

How Do I Reinstall Netmeeting

Reinstalling Netmeeting requires that you open the Windows inf folder. Obviously, this is one of many hidden folders, so before you can actually view the contents of the file you need to unhide it. See Show Hidden Files and Folders.

Once you have unhidden the files proceed as follows:

1/ Open C:\Windows\Inf folder

2/ Locate the msnnetmtg.inf file.

3/ Right click on this file and select Install

4/ You will need your XP CD for the install to proceed, so make sure it is handy.

If you don't particularly want to go to the trouble of unhiding hidden files you can obtain the same result via the Run dialog box.

1/ Click the Start Button

2/ Next click Run

3/ In the Run dialog box type: %systemroot%\Inf

4/ Locate the msnetmtg.inf file

5/ Right click on this file and select Install

6/ Remember you will need your XP CD to install Netmeeting
