Hi,

We are trying to have netmeeting enabled in the Windows 7 professional desktops. We have got the hotfix "Netmeeting-kb927853-x86-enu" for the same.

When we are trying to install the hotfix. It is giving the below error and when we are trying to open netmeeting.exe it is giving the same error.

=============================================================================
The procedure entry point ASN1PERDecChar16String could not be located in the dynamic link library MSASN1.dll.
=============================================================================

Kindly suggest if anyone has tried it.

Right click on the setup file -properties-compatibility mode-select xp and click ok. Then try to install it. Can use the same setting for the net meeting executable.

Can also use XP mode in windows 7

Netmeeting will not work on windows 7 unless you crack the system files of the OS. Discussion of cracking method is prohibited in EE forum.

Setting compatibility mode will not work too.

In long run, you need to find a replacement for netmeeting such as Microsoft Office Live Meeting.

That's exactly right jackieman
Listen to him.
The same with Windows Meeting Space was removed from Vista and none are available in windows 7, this explains it and may assist you to undersatand the dynamic link library is completely different
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Meeting_Space

List of features removed in Windows 7 worth a read..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_features_removed_in_Windows_7

Microsoft recommends using new applications such as Remote Desktop Connection, Remote Assistance, Windows Live Messenger and Microsoft Office Live Meeting in place of NetMeeting.
To share the Desktop, Microsoft also released SharedView as a separate download. Here is the download link:
SharedView

or Live Meeting

I need something for providing support to internal network users. They might not have internet connection and Windows Live ID so how would I use sharedview or live meeting. What are the port requirements for these tools

Since they all run  Windows 7 professional desktops it should be relative simple.
I cannot answer this as far as I know it's not possible for them you need something else like Lan Chat

All the tools which are mentioned are third party tools and freewares. Has Microsoft not included anything in Win 7 for intranet users desktop sharing like netmeeting

Netmeeting was gone forever as having access to the Internet and an Windows Live account are the basic assumptions from Microsoft when they developed Windows 7.

You can see MS encourages and expects users to use Windows Live free services from hotmail, messenger, windows live mail, windows live photos....

So, there are a number of corprations susch as Standard Chertered Bank to download the OS to Windows XP even though the new computers are designed for Windows 7.
