Autorun CD with PDF and Powerpoint Files

Guest

I am making a CD-ROM Catalog. I run Windows XP, Adobe 6.0 and Powerpoint XP. I want to have the CD autorun, to a Table of Contents which takes me to both PDF and Powerpoint files. The table of contents and the programs run fine, all the links are complete. I am having two problems, one...how to run the Powerpoint presentation on a computer that may not have powerpoint installed when the powerpoint file is connected to my table of contents which was done in PDF format. I will run fine on a computer with powerpoint, but it does not run on one without it. Second problem, having the CD go to the Table of Contents rather than the files on the CD where you would have to select the file to begin running the program.

If you can help me, I will be very grateful, I've been struggling with this for days!
Thanks

Open the PowerPoint presentation and click File/Pack and Go. Run through the
wizard and at some point it will ask you if you wish to include the
PowerPoint Viewer with the presentation. Click Yes and you will be prompted
to download the viewer.

This viewer will enable the presentation to be viewed on a system that does
not have PowerPoint installed.

You can also go to the direct download site for the viewer.

Download details: PowerPoint 2003 Viewer: Allows viewing of presetations
created in PowerPoint 97 or later.
