Can't Find Shortcut Target in 7 x64 Home Prem
I want to set Windows 7 Home Premium x64 to open PowerPoint files in PowerPoint Viewer rather than OpenOffice (the current default program), but I can't find the location of the PowerPoint Viewer program file.
With a user administratior account, when I open a properties window for the shortcut icon and and go to the Shortcut tab, in the Target box there is no path to the target file. The target is said to be simply, "Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007 (English)". Ditto for all other shortcuts to Microsoft Office programs.
Shortcuts for other programs however (e.g. Calculator, Paint, OpenOffice, etc.) all display a pathname in the target box.
Anyone else run into this and know the solution?

Perhaps I am missing something in the link you refferred to karlsnooks, but I don't see any information on what directory the powerpoint program is actually installed to. Even during installation it does not give me the option of deciding where to install it.
Can someone please tell me the default installation directory for PowerPoint on Windows 7 x64 or tell me how to reveal the target path of the shortcut so that I can assign pps files to open by default with PowerPoint instead of OpenOffice?
