The answer is no.

Have a look at this post directly at Microsoft..

NetMeeting was removed from W7. Microsoft suggests using Windows Meeting Space instead. Here's an article that discusses it and explains how to access Windows Meeting Space:

Another approach is to use Microsoft Live Meeting, discussed here:

Thanks, I do not know why I cannot find "Windows Meeting Space" in the following process in my win 7.

 Open Windows Meeting Space by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Meeting Space

SharedView appears to be vaporware. I've found that site94 link on numerous pages around microsoft.com and they all lead to a 'page doesn't exist' page. The "Utility Spotlight 2008" program (a self-extracting archive) contains a file named "link.txt" which has the URL
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=95AF94BA-755E-4039-9038-63005EE9D33A&displaylang=en
in it...  that dumps you out at the Microsoft Downloads Center 'default' page, and searching for "SharedView" there finds nothing, either:

Results for: "SharedView"

Sorry, we could not find any results on Download Center. It may help to:
 • Correct your spelling
 • Try Tips for Finding Downloads
 • Try your search on Microsoft.com Search
 • Try your search on Bing

It looks like they broke up the free NetMeeting into a number of pieces and replaced those different functions with different programs. e.g. Remote Desktop, LiveMeeting (requires Communications Server), Skype, and Lync Online.

I did not find ANY site where someone claimed to have gotten NetMeeting to work on Win7.

The closest you can get is running it in XP Mode installed on Win7 pro/ultimate/enterprise .

Then add a VM and load XP in it. There shouldn't be a problem then!

I did keep digging and found an undocumented location for SharedView on microsoft.com (I should have known better than rely on bing to find it)

http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/9/5/1958d3db-f0cc-4c83-a728-44e612be41c4/SharedView.msi

Get it while you can, because when they notice the bandwidth use they'll probably delete it from there, too.
