Can't Activate Netmeeting??

A PC on our network won't allow us to activate Netmeeting or start the Netmeeting service through Computer Management.  When I right-click on the Netmeeting icon in the taskbar and select "Activate", nothing happens.  When I manually start the service, it returns, "The Netmeeting Remote Desktop Sharing server started and then stopped.  ...no work to do ..." I've tried removing and reinstalling Netmeeting but that didnt' help.  I've tried hacking the appropriate keys in the reg to make it happen; the reg key settings import correctly, but Netmeeting still won't start.

Anyone else experience this ever?  Any suggestions?

Thanks!

MS put netmeeting on XP for backward compatabiity but doesn't really support it and it doesn't work very well.  If you are trying to use netmeeting to share screenshots, the XP solution is remote assistance. You get to it by going to Start>help and support>.  If you are trying to use netmeeting for videoconferencing then the XP solution is MSN messenger.  I know this doesn't solve your problem about netmeeting not working, but it really isn't desinged to work on XP and XP has other solutions to replace netmeeting.
