Hi:
I have just done my first PowerPoint presentation( Iam though relatively computer literate). I did the pack & go and burned it to cd. I brought it to a computer(running ME) that I do not have PowerPoint on (or any office products) I installed the viewer and tried to open my presentation. It could not open it. I did notice that it changed the ext to .ppz. PowerPoint itself on my original computer could not identify the file either. Anyone have any ideas? As a side note, I assume pack & go gathers pictures and fonts, sort of like a PDF so it will look the same on everyones computer. Am I right

Thanks for the help

Help me please

When you create the "pack and go", and include the viewer, you get the .ppz file and another file "pngsetup.exe"

This PNGSETUP file unpacks and runs the presentation.

Perhaps you are not including it on the CD?

Works fine for me (just tried it to be certain)
