Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for PC

1 Answer

PowerPoint Viewer 2007

My wife uses a desktop PC with Office 2003, including PowerPoint 2003. So far all PowerPoint files sent as email attachments open & run OK.

I use a older laptop with Works + Word, and it doesn't have PowerPoint installed. Both computers use XP Home + SP2, fully patched and all applicable Office updates & patches as well, including the update for Word 2007 DOCX files. Both computers run IE7 and OE6, again fully patched.

On the laptop I have been using PowerPoint Viewer 97 satisfactorily until recently when several files (*.pps) wouldn't run. Often the first screen would open but nothing else except for the last page.

I have downloaded and installed PowerPoint Viewer 2007, thinking that this would open all files from 97 onwards. But it is no better at opening these problem files than PP Viewer 97.

Additionally, since installing PP Viewer 2007, I cannot open any PP attachment in Outlook Express 6, something I used to do all the time. When I try this, even with PP files that used to run, the file now opens in Notepad, not PP Viewer 2007.

I have checked the file associations in Folder Options, and PPS as well as PPT files are set to open with PP, but the only way that I can open these files now is to save the attachment to hard disk and then the file association will open PP Viewer 2007. At this point the files that opened OK in PP Viewer 97 still open OK, but the problem ones just won't open beyond the first & last pages.

I have uninstalled and re-installed PP Viewer 2007 but have now run out of ideas. I have just installed Service Pack 1 for PP Viewer 2007, but it did not fix the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How to open 2007 word document in 2003 word?

Hi there,

Two options.

One. Upgrade to 2007. A bit on the spendy side.

Two. All office products have the ability to Save their documents (etc.) in a format readable by previous versions.

I would ask your friend to open the file, save as a Word 2003 Document and resend the file. No expense, fast, easy.

Best regards

Microsoft essentials has changed my defaults of

It was *NOT* Microsoft Essentials that made the change!

Open "My Documents".
Click Tools.
Click Folder Options.
Click File Types.
Remove all the "association" entries that point to the Microsoft Powerpoint program.
Remove all the "association" entries that point to the Microsoft Photo Viewer.

Then, double-click one of your photos, and Windows will ask you to select which program to use to open your photo. Choose IRFANVIEW VIEWER, and click the "always use this program" check-mark.

Double-click one of your PowerPoint files, and do as above.

Some of my emails have attachments that read ''Unknown File'' when I try to pull them up. I used to save them to PowerPoint and was able to pull them up there, but I don't have PowerPoint anymore. Is there...

It is marked "UNKNOWN FILE" because you don't have MICROSOFT OFFICE installed in your PC to be specific MS PowerPoint is not installed, yes you can still download them from your email account but you can't open them. You have to install MS OFFICE to be able to view this files.
