    Default Re: PowerPoint Viewer 2007 won't open PPS/PPT files


    I have tried to correct this problem following the instructions as
    given, I did change the "show" to "open" in the registry and it still
    won't open any pps.

    I have Vista and Office 2007, the association is set to open any pps
    with the PowerPoint Viewer.

    I made the change in both
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PowerPointViewer.SlideShow.11 and
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PowerPointViewer.SlideShow.12



    Any other suggestions?

    And by the way, the files do open when saved, but won't open when
    trying to open from Windows Mail.

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks
    Mo

    Use OpenWith Wizard and set PowerPoint Viewer as default app to show sideshow.

    It's already set a the default, but still won't open.

    I don't know what else to do!

    Use this utility to unassociated the file type. Then you can associate the
    file type as you wish. I had the same issue.

    Gee whiz, I thought, finally I've got something that will work.
    I downloaded the zip, and ran the exe BUT when I go to the extension
    pps, the button "remove file association" is greyed out so I can't do it

    This is getting frustrating, have you any idea why it would be greyed
    out?

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    NO idea, you might try uninstalling Office and the Viewer to see if that
    allows access. Then Unassociated and Re-Install.
