I found a Netmeeting error and thought I would post the solution.

Error:
"NetMeeting could not start. Please restart your computer and try again."

Solution:
There is another application using the same ports as Netmeeting so it can not open those ports. The program is called Remote Desktop Sharing.

To Resolve right-click the icon in your tray bar with the title Remote Desktop Sharing. Click Turn off Remote Desktop Sharing.

Conclusion:
Run Netmeeting again and all should be fine.

So why doesn't NetMeeting just tells you that the ports are used? Duh that's why I hate Microsoft things! But I gotta live with it.

Microsoft errors are always vague. I wonder if companies do this because they want you to call their support lines. I know that MS charges $75 for consumer calls and I think around $250 for business calls (per hour).
