How do you start a scheduled meeting as host without login?
I am working with v5.0.24433.0616 Windows SDK.
I have scheduled a meeting using the REST API, for email@example.com (not the real email address, obviously) using https://firstname.lastname@example.org/meetings, and got a meeting ID and password, and then got a ZAK for email@example.com. Then, from the Windows SDK demo app, using the ‘RestAPI Without Login’ tab, I have entered the ZAK and meeting ID, and a suitable user name. The ‘Enter a meeting password’ dialog box appears, I duly enter the meeting password, and then all I get is the ‘Please wait for the host to start this meeting’ dialog, with the spinning cursor. I expected that calling IMeetingService::Start using the ZAK for the host user would have actually started the meeting.
Is there a way to do this? To be clear, I want to start the meeting, not join it. The meeting has been successfully scheduled, with firstname.lastname@example.org as the host. So why doesn’t IMeetingService::Start actually start the meeting, instead of behaving like IMeetingService::Join?
