.pps on outlook express cannot open

When I receive an email with a .pps file I cannot open it. PowerPoint goes on the task bar but doesn't open and I have to use task manager to have it disappear from the task bar. I use windows XP. I have Office XP and Microsoft PowerPoint viewer 2003. Both won't work.

Am confused regarding what to download for simple power point viewer use when receiving e-mail with "pps" attachments. Will appreciate recommendations.


Hi,

If you wish to view Power Point (.pps) attachments you receive in your e-mail, you need to download and install the Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007 which you can download by clicking this link.

Also, please be careful while opening PowerPoint documents you receive in email because a lot of viruses are transmitted these days along with .pps documents. So, only open PowerPoint attchments from contacts whom you know.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

Any email file I receive that has a pps attachment I cannot open


Ill ask the obvious first, do you have Microsoft Powerpoint installed? If you dont, you can download a free PPS viewer. Just Google "PPS Viewer" , download and install it. If you do have PowerPoint, then try saving the pps file to your computer locally and try opening it? Please always post your questions with as much details as you can. What email client are you using? Gmail, Yahoo, Thunderbird, Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, etc. Its hard to answer questions with hardly any info. Thanks!

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

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!
