    NetMeeting Help File on Web Site


    We have NetMeeting 3.01 embedded in our web site but I have been unable to
    figure out how to link NetMeeting's Help System to this web page without
    having the user download it each time they need to use it. Is there a web
    version of this help system that can be linked to the web page that we have
    NetMeeting embedded?

    I am not sure what "help system" you are referring to.

    By being embedded in you website I assume that means an activex component in
    a web page oe ?

    Yes, it is placed on a web page using the activex component. The help file
    I am talking about is the NetMeeting Help file that can be accessed by the
    stand alone version from the drop-down menu at the top of NetMeeting. It
    is the *.chm file. I have been unable to find a way to include that on my
    web page that does not require the user to first download it to their pc.
    Feel free to e-mail me if you have more questions.

    Thanks.

    Well since to have the activex embedded in the web page requires NM to be
    installed on the user's computer -- isn't the help file already there on the
    users's computer and accesible in the normal way from the help menu item?

    Yes, the help file is on the user's pc but the help menu item is not included
    in the activex component. I was trying to avoid trying to set my web app
    to attempt to locate the help file that is already installed on the users
    pc becuase depending on which OS they are using depends on where it will
    be located. I was hopin there was a way to add it to the web page as a WebHelp
    application.

    Either you use the one already on the local machine ( admittedly to use it
    in NM you must undock the NM program and click on the help function) or you
    link to it from your website as a .chm file and view in the browser ( I
    guess that should work -- I haven't really tried though -- that will
    download it as it would any browser viewable file) -- I can't think of any
    other way.

    The activex component is very limited.

    Hi, I'm planning to deploy netmeeting on my corporation and I'd like you to
    send some docs related with this issue, such "how to" docs or whatever.
    I'd be so grateful if you send this to me.
