Thank you.

The 2003 version works perfectly well in x64 and takes only 4 MB space in the hard disk. I got it from here:

Powerpoint viewer solution

I couldn't get my powerpoints to play until I right clicked on the one I wanted to view and clicked rename. The only thing I changed was the pps. I changed it to ppt and now I can watch it. I don't know if this helps anyone but it helped me.

Possible Solution

I’m having a problem opening files using ‘Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007’. Every time I try to open a file with it, it tries to open the file with ‘2007 Microsoft Office component’. I’ve right clicked on the file and tried the ‘open with’ option, and found the viewer and clicked on it. Even after I do this, it still tries to use ‘2007 Microsoft Office component’. Even using the properties window and changing the ‘Opens with:’ option, it still uses ‘2007 Microsoft Office component’ to open the file. It’s as if the two programs are getting confused with each other.
The only option I’ve found is to open ‘Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007’ directly. After you do this a window will pop open allowing you to find a file and open it. While this does allow you to use the viewer, it is still not functioning as intended.
Anybody have any other answers?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Do you just have Powerpoint Viewer installed or do you have Microsoft Office 2007 (which includes Powerpoint)installed as well?

Nevermind, I feel like a jackass. Forgot a basic rule of troubleshooting computers: uninstall and reinstall. That did it. It works fine now. Thanks for the help though.
