when I try to open emailattachments ending in PPS, I get the message that windows cannot find movieplayer.exe which is needed to open attachments of that type. A search of my computer does not find it. Where can I find a copy of this.

i could be wrong but i think PPS is a powerpoint format...

not long in google after, and i was right. PowerPoint Show

if you dont have powerpoint installed, download the free viewer here:

if you do have powerpoint installed, change the file association, or open powerpoint and then from within powerpoint open the attachment (you'll have to save it somewhere first, either your desktop or your documents folder will do)

.pps files are Powerpoint presentation files. If you do not have Powerpoint you can use a free viewer to view them. After downloading and installing the viewer make sure .pps files are associated with the viewer.

Download from here: http://office.microsoft.com/downloads/2000/Ppview97.aspx

Sorry for duplicating Whetu's information. I had a number of pages open and took a while to get back to this thread.
