not sure that anything on my puter has changed but.....

where I was able to open pps files before I am no longer able to. Before the prompt was always open or save...I'd click on open and the pps would open easily. Now when I click on open another window opens promptin to save the document with a converter of some kind. no "open" option.so....I click save and get anopther window pop-up that says converter unable to save document. I've been to MS to search for a fix for this issue and can find nothing.

anyone seen'heard of this issue?

has this issue coincided with getting the new puter with Office 2007 Rich?

not that I have the answer yet, if it does....but it'd at least narrow the search...

see if this link helps...it might just be that extension needs to be 'turned on'- http://en.kioskea.net/faq/sujet-190-opening-a-pps-file
Find us on for updates, including site issues. Also now on Reddit, not that I'm sure what we're doing there yet.
