i wanna make a slide show, that means any computer can access it from cd, or email...without having to download anything to run it..or install anything to run it...and be able to access it on win98 and winxp

is there any programs i can use to do this or anything within officexp that i can use to do this...

i wanna use music, background images, and photos on the background images, and text...but background images arent really needed if it cant be done...

I doubt it very much. With all the tings you expect, you will need to possibly buy a software package

I was reading just this week about a program by Microsoft to run in Windows XP that does something similar to what you have described. Unfortunately I do not remember where I read about it. Maybe you could try looking around Microsoft's website for it?

I think the Slideshow Generator and CD Slide Show Generator in the new Windows XP PowerToys was the one but it does not appear to allow music and text. Have a look at this page (http://www.winsupersite.com/reviews/windowsxp_pt.asp) for more information.

Hello csinclair83

You can make your sideshow with Microsoft PowerPoint it is very easy to use & you get good results!

The only thing is that you need Microsoft PowerPoint on the computer that it will be play on (I think), They might be an away you can do it, but I am not 100% sure.

Sorry I could be much help

Had a search around and found something that sounds encouraging here (http://www.webattack.com/freeware/gmm/fwmmcompiler.shtml) called AlbumDIY.
It can be compiled as an exe file, which makes it self-supporting.

Powerpoint will do the job and you won't need powerpoint on the computer that runs the slideshow.

You create the slideshow using powerpoint and when saving you ask to "Pack and go"

Save the whole lot to a CD with an Autorun.inf
