Question about Business & Productivity Software

I have attempted to open a game that is a PPS file. I have Windows Vista and Powerpoint 2007. It opens a screen shot of the game but does not play the game and as soon as you click the mouse button if finishes the slide show and closes the window. Is there a setting problem or change that I need to make to fix this?

your powerpoint file seems to be severely corrupted. You may try to open this file in PowerPoint Fix Toolbox http://www.powerpoint.fixtoolbox.com/

If if it useless follow the steps 1) Open a new presentation and use Insert --> Slides --> From existing presentation to pull in the slides from the corrupted file. This works about 50% of the time.

Hi,

In case the PPT file is corrupted, you could not open it until you repair it using some software. Previously when I too faced the similar situation, I was able to repair corrupted PPT file using Repair PPT software. For more details you can visit the below mentioned website.

Which is the software that converts presentations into a self running slide show


Hi,

there are many different slide show converters,
One of them with a free 30 day trial can be found here:

You need to have PowerPoint installed on your system when using the converter.

Office 2003 Uninstall


First of all, you don't have to reinstall Powerpoint. Just right click on a .pps file, select 'Open with' > 'Choose Porgram' select Powepoint, and then check in the checkbox which says: "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file", and click OK. It makes Powerpoint the default program to open your .pps files.

And to answer your question: in theory you won't loose any data by reinstall, but it's always a good idea to make a backup of the data files before such an action. p, li { white-space: p

Pps


Go to the internet and search for Power Point Viewer. I believe that Office standard doesn't come with Powerpoint either that or the *.pps file type doesn't have powerpoint as the program to start it.

Opening pps messages


Hi nati662992,

pps files are Microsoft PowerPoint slideshows.

Because Powerpoint is part of the Microsoft Office package, you would think that you would have to purchase Microsoft Office to view .pps files. This is not so. You can download the free PowerPoint viewer from here:

http://www.download.com/PowerPoint-Viewer-2007/3000-18483_4-10742145.html

Install that and reboot.
Then open the email again and it will automatically open with Powerpoint Viewer. Or it will ask you what program you want to open it with, and you click the PowerPoint Viewer .exe icon, and tick the 'Always open with this Program?' box.

Good Luck and Season's Greetings to you!
