Using GoToMeeting with Windows 7

I’ve been using Windows 7 now (Build 7000) for about 2 weeks and am very happy with it.  I still get some strange behavior now and again, but overall, it’s been very stable.  I much prefer it to either XP or Vista.  I do find some software I can’t easily get to work (which is no surprise), but if I really need it (like I do GoToMeeting), I usually figure out a way to make it work.

So, for GoToMeeting, if you launch it from their web site ( and simply say “Create Meeting”, you will get an error saying IE8 is not supported.  I found that if I actually downloaded the GoToMeeting application from their web site, then move the application to my start bar and set the properties to be “Run As Vista” and “Run As Administrator”, I had success.


Hopefully, this will work for you.

  1. The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, however I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you can repair when you werent too busy looking for attention.King Regards Bernd
