We are using samtime 6.51 and after upgrading to SP2 users are unabel to launch sametime sharing sessions. i tried everything on the page below. I am able to open the meeting room if i copy the link to the meeting room and paste it in a web browser but nothing runs directly from the sametime window, for instance if i type http://www.google.com in a sametime window it shows up as a hyperlink but when i click on it it doesnt open anything, this would work before upgrading to SP2 and still works from other programs like MS Word. Can someone help here??

Have you added the sametime website as a trusted site on internet explorer? Are other users able to connect sametime that did not get the upgrade?

I would also check the the firewall is not turned on after the SP2 install.
Lastly the active scripting needs to be on I think, in order for Sametim to run correctly.

I hope this helps !

Have you tried clicking "ctrl" while you click the link in sametime- this is what I have to do to get it to open.  I think it is a security feature that comes with service pack 2.
