"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This will be my first time using WebEx.  I accepted a WebEx Meeting Invitation. I have been provided with the following information:

1.  Meeting Link
2.  Meeting Number
3.  Meeting Password:  This meeting does not require a password.
4.  Audio Conference Information which includes two phone numbers.
5.  If having trouble, I have been provided with Two backup phone  numbers.

What exact steps do I need to execute to successfully attend this meeting ?  Please don't assume anything.  For example, don't assume I have anything WebEx related installed in my computer.

use the url to connect, enter the meeting number and password, you will be prompted to install an addon, run the addon, accept the UAC prompt, enter your name and an email address (can be a dummy email address if you don't want the recording of the event) that's about it.
