PowerPoint Viewer 2007

Hello, I have to do a presentation this wednesday. I'm making it with
PowerPoint 2007 but where I will project it they have not Pwpt2007. I saw in
the "Office12" folder that there was a PPTVIEW.exe.
Can I just Copy/Paste this executable and run it to play my presentation?
Did someone ever try it?
Or do you know if there is an install of just this viewer without the entire
Office2007?

Thank you for your quick answers because my presentation is Wedenesday and
the time is running out.

Hi Mike,

The safest thing to do is to save your presentation in the 97-2003
Presentation format (PPT) and use an earlier version of PPT to present
it.
The PPT Viewer you pointed out seems to support the PPTX format, but I
wouldn't be a presentation on it. It could be that the current support
is incomplete. If you want to run the risk, Package for CD will probably
package the viewer for you (I haven't tried it yet).

I would use the ppt format though.

Thank you very much for answering. I already had done my slides with the
brand new Wordart and lists.
So I tried the package to a CD and it works! I just had a problem the first
time. There wasn't any file in the "playlist" but I did it again and the file
name was in it and the presentation works.
The problem is just that the folder created is ugly with many .dll. I hope
the Office developpment team will release a proper install of the PowerPoint
Viewer 2007.

You should be able to retain all the fancy new stuff when saving it as
ppt. Basically those items will be saved as pictures and ppt 2003 or
earlier versions will be able to display them therefore correctly.
If you happen to open the same ppt file again in 2007, you will notice
that all the items are editable again and not shown to you as pictures.
This is a neat feature in 2007 that allows you to retain they look in
previous versions (obviously as pictures the things aren't editable),
but keep the full fledged editing capability when opened in 2007. Notice
that the ppt file will be much bigger in size than the pptx file.
