Convert Live Meetings to Lync Online Meetings

As you know, Live Meeting is being discontinued by Microsoft on April 29th, 2013. Because of this a lot of businesses are having to find alternatives. If you are moving forward with Microsoft Lync, follow the instructions below to convert your Live Meetings to Lync Online Meetings. There is no need to re-setup all your meetings. Feel free to tweak this tutorial and send it to your employees/co-workers.

This tutorial assumes you have already installed the Microsoft Lync client.

Microsoft Lync Conversion

Step 1

The first step is to close Microsoft Outlook.

Step 2

The second step is to uninstall the Live Meeting “Microsoft Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook.” To do this, go into the control panel, uninstall a program, select “Microsoft Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook” and click on Uninstall.


Step 3

Now launch Microsoft Outlook and click into a meeting you have previously scheduled with Live Meeting.


Step 4

Click the Lync “Online Meeting” icon and then click on “Send Update.” This will send an updated meeting invite to the recipient(s) and convert it to a Lync Online meeting.


Hopefully that helps!
