How can I run the discontiuned NetMeeting on Windows 7?

Microsoft discontinued NetMeeting a while ago and it is no longer included in Vista or Windows 7. I have read that there is a hot fix to get it working on Vista, but is there such a thing for Windows 7?

"Discussion on SevenForums Netmeeting replacement in Windows 7 has this to say,

Does Netmeeting work in Win7?
No it doesn't, nor does the ""Vista compatible"" version of Netmeeting. Unless something is offered to replace it, Windows Meeting Spaces (or whatever it is called in Vista now) isn't even included in the Win7 beta, or at least I can't find it if it is.

But, do read it up once.

There is also a Wikipedia note on the same."

We have tried it and it does work in XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx) but it is not something we really want our users to have.

"""Restore down"" (i.e. un-maximize) the VM window to get access to the tools menu
Select ""Disable integration Features"" from the ""tools"" menu
(Re)maximize the VM window
(Re)launch Netmeeting only after previous steps were complete
(Re)join any call you were in where you wanted to share an app or your desktop
Share like you did before Windows 7"

"Netmeeting works in Windows 7. Here's how, assuming that you are connecting to a private network.

Install XP virtual machine and run it
In the title bar, Tools->Settings->Networking

Change the adapter from NAT to your installed hardware network adapter

Setup VPN in the XP VM, run it, and connect to your private network
Enable the windows firewall in the XP VM (optional but recommended)

Configure netmeeting"
