  • Office Live Meeting Client (Windows-based client) does not support Mac.

    Office Live Meeting Web Access (Web-based client) supports Mac OS X V10.5.x:

      Firefox 3.x with Apple Java 1.5.0_16

      Safari 3.x with Apple Java 1.5.0_16

  • With Office Live Meeting Web Access I get a drop down message that "This meeting uses computer audio (VoIP).   Computer Audio is not available with this console which is web based.   To get computer audio please install the Microsoft Office Live Meeting client."

    Without being able to hear or speak,  Live Meeting isn't very useful.

    I meet all the Mac/Safari/JAVA requirements.    What are my options?

  • That MS link is no longer available.  What happened to it?  Now I cannot find any MS specific resource that has Mac compatible Live Meeting information.  Please help!

  • hi,

    I  am new to this thread, i like to explore new things in live meeting and web conferencing. I think forums are the best way to do the same.

    Well i want toestablish a remote meeting, with five members of our company, for ease of all members. Can  anybody tell me, what all I need to set up this live meeting?

    Thanks and Regards

  • If you plan on using Microsoft BPOS with either all, or a mixed environment of Mac's then it appears as though certain features are not available.

    If you install the latest Mac Office Home and Business 2011 to work with MS BPOS Suite, then Live Meeting is significantly restricted in what it can do, and Office Communicator does not appear to work . The Messenger version (v8) that comes with Mac Office Home and Business does not  support connectivity to BPOS.  If you go to the BPOS Administrator site to download the Office Communicator (2007 R2) only a Windows version exists.

    So - when the Mac version of Office 2011 was being developed, was it considered that it should fully support BPOS?

    I believe the rationale for having a separate office communicator from Messenger product is so that Business users are not distracted by non business messages.  However, that would seem to be something a business setup could manage through policies.

  • So the links above no longer work and Miley Tipton, and Dougie B don't seem to have the answer, is there no way to get Live Meeting working on a MAC.  After working on this for a week or so and scowering the web the only thing I have come up with is that it won't work.  Someone please prove me wrong. Thanks,  Runner

  • This is amazing. The MS rep posts THREE BROKEN LINKS and then the fourth one CONTAINS NO USEFUL INFORMATION AT ALL !!!

    Presumably this crapware DOES NOT WORK ON apple computers and since I've got a couple of them in the field, I need to find some other meeting solution from a different developer. I don't understand why they can't "port" a simple java client to a second platform, or why their support people can't provide the most basic information. But here we are.

  • This fails to answer the question. Did you have a look at that page and read it? Did you have a look at that page on a Mac? Because that page says, "because you are using a different operating system, some information is not being shown to you." So maybe you are answering things without having any idea what you are saying?

  • Same problem here.  Try http://join.me 

    It works great in a PC or a Mac (I have both) and it is free for impromptu meetings.  The Pro version is paid.  It is a product of LogMeIn, so you know it is good, legit and secure.

  • I am scheduled to take a Live Meeting class and can't figure out how I'm going to do that on a Mac.  Help!

  • All I did was go to Java Preferences (under Utilities) and on the Advanced Tab, ensure that the last option on the list "Verify mixed security code (sandbox vs. trusted)" is set to "Enable - run with protections, no warnings". This is probably what was causing Java to hang before opening the session.

  • Finally, a fix! Thanks. I've been trying to get the Java client fixed for some time. The applet would open but not finish loading. There were no system prompts or warnings. It used to work, but somewhere along the way a system update apparently changed the permission settings. Switching from "Enable - show warnings" to "Enable - run with protections, no warnings" solved the problem. 

    Thanks.

  • No. That is not Microsoft's responsibly. That issue is because Java has a lot of security holes. So you should talk down on Sun Systems.  And if you read anything about it instead of being stereotypical MAC ignorant you would know as well. 

    Also I would point out that the solution was easy and posted at the top of this thread http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884961

    It is also the second hit on Google. I am also surprised that no-one suggested just running it inside Parallels.

  • > Also I would point out that the solution was easy and posted at the top of this thread http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884961

    No, that web page says nothing about  the solution suggested here, which is to set "Verify mixed security code (sandbox vs. trusted)"  to "Enable - run with protections, no warnings".

    That web page refers to a Java version from c.2005 I guess, and the current Java control panel, even the one that was current in 2012, is nothing like the one described in that KB article.

    Also, the terminal command that the KB article suggests to run, does not work on current macintosh installations.

    That KB article is not at all helpful.

    by the way, for me, neither is the suggestion to tick the box for "enable - run with protections, no warnings".  That also doesn't help.  Also, I Can find no way to diagnose or troubleshoot this thing. It just "doesn't work".  And there's no way to gain further insight.

  • Don't be an arrogant Windoze sheep either.

    All of the MS KB articles are 5 years out of date and need to be archived.  It's now 2014 and there still isn't a new KB article outlining this fix from Sun or MS.

  • All of the links in this article are dead.  Scroll to (near) the bottom for a solution that might work for you (in 2014)

    "All of the MS KB articles are 5 years out of date and need to be archived.  It's now 2014 and..."

    It's now 2014 and Live Meeting is 7 years out of date.  Microsoft will soon be sunsetting this product and are pushing people to use Lync instead.  There have not been any updates to the product in years, and there will be no more in the future.  I don't know why anyone feels the need to flame others.  Ask questions, provide answers, and keep your useless biases/opinions to yourself.

  • Hello All,

    Checked this thread and found this to be interesting... so to check, used this Test Meeting link to join the Meeting on MAC,

    go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=90703

    I was not able to join this meeting on Safari. Used the solution -- Verify mixed security code (sandbox vs. trusted)"  to "Enable - run with protections, no warnings". No changes.

    as I was not able to check the Java add-in in Safari so I tried this Test Meeting link with the FireFox web browser.

    I was able to see the meeting window after some security prompts, but it got stuck on "Connecting to the Meeting" page.

    then I found that the add-in was waiting for the permissions to run java app, by clicking in left side corner of the meeting window in the addin button. I allowed that add-in to run by selecting the option "Allow and Remember".

    And it was resolved...!! but I need to check this for Safari as well. this solution is applicable on all MAC versions and Java versions...

    Let me know if this works for you..!!
