This article describes how to attend a Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 session or a Live Meeting 2005 session.
A Live Meeting organizer may invite you to attend a Live Meeting session by sending you an email invitation. Live Meeting contains a feature that automatically generates an email invitation that contains information that resembles the following information:
Note If the e-mail invitation does not contain this information, verify that the invitation contains a Meeting URL, a Meeting ID, and a Meeting Key. These items may be coded into the URL, or they may be provided separately.
You can join a Live Meeting session at the scheduled time by clicking the Live Meeting URL that is included in the e-mail invitation. You must type your credentials on the Join Meeting page and then click Join Meeting.
If this method does not work, you can use the Meeting URL that is included in the e-mail invitation. To do this, follow these steps:
In Microsoft Internet Explorer or in another browser, enter the Meeting URL in the Address box.
On the Join Meeting page, type the following information:
The name that you want Live Meeting to display to other participants
The Meeting ID that is included in the email invitation
The Meeting Key that is included in the email invitation
Or, you can use the web-based version of the Live Meeting client to join the meeting. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Note If you have never attended a Live Meeting session before, Live Meeting prompts you to download and then to install the Live Meeting console. After you install the Live Meeting console, you will be connected to the Live Meeting session.
If you have previously attended a Live Meeting session, you may not be prompted to download and to install the Live Meeting console.
