Windows 7: Will Free Power Point Viewer work in Win7 64-bit

Phone Man,

Okay ... I hope I can explain this so you can understand me.

I tried typing 'PPTVIEW.EXE' into the Start Menu Search area like you said but the search found nothing.

So, then I went to All Programs ... left- clicked on Microsoft Power Point Viewer and it took me to a Power Point Viewer window showing my Documents folder. In the Documents folder I left-clicked on my Power Point Folder and all my .pps files appeared.

I then left-clicked on them one at a time and then clicked on Open at the bottom right of the Power Point Viewer window and each of them opened with Power Point Viewer.

However, if I would go directly to my Power Point folder and try to open them I still get that Power Point message I posted earlier.

Thanks and regards,

2harts4ever

OK, looks like the PP Viewer is working but the .pps is not associated with the right program. You may have to dig into Program Files (x86) and see if you can find where PP Viewer is installed and look for the .exe file.

Phone Man,

Searched in Program Files (X86) and found Microsoft Power Point Viewer in Microsoft Office. Sent it to Startup menu and now I just click on it and my Power Point Files are displayed and I just select the one I want to watch and I am off to the races.

Thanks for your patience.
