I donít think you can auto run PowerPoint creations (as far as I am aware), also you will need to have PowerPoint on the computer, which you will be showing the PowerPoint on.

Briefly,
autorun executable starts
detect if either PowerPoint or PowerPoint is installed
- if yes detect version for compatability - prompt if version is incompatable
- if no prompt to install PowerPoint Viewer
blah blah.

Consider doing it in Flash or such like.

Powerpoint has a pack and go feature.

Save to CDRom.

Post via SnailMail the CD.

Pack and go will include the viewer so people don't have to have PowerPoint installed.
