Help and Technical Support:
1. A common problem a first-time user may encounter is the installation of meeting.jnlp. Although the file is automatically downloaded, it requires administrator rights for the computer being used before it will install. Sometimes this file will initiate installation on its own. If it does not, you will need to locate the file and start the installation process manually. If you are unable to install meeting.jnlp please login with your administrator account and reinitiate installation. If problems persist, check with your local computer administrator for assistance.

2. A Java applet is used to make the connection between your computer and the online conference. A computer may be running an earlier version of Java so that it can continue to work with older software. To use that computer, the version of Java will have to be updated. If this is not practical, consider using another computer for connecting to the conference.
