Microsoft Powerpoint - PPS won't play after being Packaged for CD
Asked By K. Osei on 05-Mar-09 08:25 PM
I have a PPS with narration. The narration bits are saved as linked .wav files. The pps and the audio files are grouped in a folder. When I go through the Package for CD process, the viewer opens but the show doesn't start. I can manually advance the slides (and the audio) but it does not advance automatically. But, here's the odd part, if I go to the explorer window, look at all the files on the CD and click on the pps from there, the show opens and plays with all the appropriate timing.
How can I get the pps to play--with the embedded timing--automatically when the CD is opened?
CD still won't play with autorun file - K. Osei replied to C_A P on 06-Mar-09 12:03 PM
I made a separate folder and put in it: the pps entitled "boat show", the sound files and an autorun file.
The autorun file had one line:
That didn't work so I tried this in the autorun file:
I tried the second version as a way to get around using the powerpoint viewer. All of the people receiving this disk have powerpoint installed so using the viewer seemed like an unnecessarily complicating layer.
Any other advice?
