Using Live Meeting 2007 with Windows 8 and Office 2013


With the many of us being out for the holidays over the past few weeks, I wanted to make sure that you didn’t miss this important Live Meeting update for Windows 8 and Office 2013.  If you regularly use Live Meeting for webcasts, you’ll want to make sure you apply these updates if you’re running Windows 8, as they address important fixes to resolve screen update issues when sharing desktops from within a Live Meeting session …

Note: When sharing application screens in Live Meeting on Windows 8, only “desktop-mode” applications are supported. Microsoft Lync 2013 is recommended for sharing Windows 8-style application screens via a webcast.

    Hi Snowcat,

    The issue you reference in the link you provided is where OCS options are unexpectedly shown when the Live Meeting conferencing add-in is installed.  From your message, it appears that you have an OCS client installation and the OCS options are still not shown.  Take a look at the registry settings in this article to see if they help in re-enabling the OCS options …

    Best regards,

    Hi Pete,

    Please confirm that your Live Meeting meeting options are configured to permit presenter recording.  By default, I believe these Live Meeting options are disabled when setting up a new meeting unless you specifically enable them during the meeting setup.

    Hope this helps!

    Seems to work much better!  The latency issues are resolved.  Some "bugs" remain though.  For instance if sharing desktop / full control / the remote user is unable to via mouseover bring up the charm window.  Windows + R / Q / C / works…  Oddly Windows X does not function.

    The cummulative update introduces unfortunately a new problem because of the support.microsoft.com/…/en-us which removes the Office Communication Server Option from the configuration of Live Meeting on Windows 8. So now I have a situation where I can't configure the live Meeting on Windows 8 because I can't connect to our Office Communicator Server anymore? What was the logic behind this "update" and is there a workaround?
