    Can you supply the correct paths and file names for initiating programmes to view files in
    Powerpoint
    Visio
    Excel

    These are needed so that when a user clicks wants to view a document referenced in Q-Pulse
    the system ensures the correct programme is launched. This does not happen all the time
    when older files are stored with unusual extensions.

    nik, these could be different on anyone's PC.

    If you're looking for the executable file paths, just do a find for the following files and note the folder they're stored in:

    PowerPoint: powerpnt.exe
    Excel: excel.exe
    Visio: visio32.exe (I'm pretty sure about this one, not positive)
