If you click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Communications, the Microsoft NetMeeting program is not available on the Communications menu.
This behavior occurs because Setup does not install a shortcut to NetMeeting that can be accessed from the Start menu.
To work around this behavior, manually start NetMeeting:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type: conf, and then press ENTER.
This behavior is by design.
