    Hey guys, I was wondering if there's a program out there that will allow me to make a CD catalog. Like to sell certain things. I need it to auto-run off a CD and have the items, store name, etc. to show up. Any ideas what program will do this? I was thinking powerpoint, but what if all of my consumers don't have powerpoint? Any suggestions would help. Thanks

    using powerpoint you can make discs that will run on systems with out powerpoint installed. Check out the help files in powerpoint to find out how. It is late and my memory fails me at the moment.

    You still need to have Powerpoint installed to make the presentation; the powerpoint viewer merely allows you to 'Pack' the presentation with the viewer so those who don't have Powerpoint (or the viewer installed) installed will be able to view it.
    The viewer is also on the MS Office Install CD - The option to install the viewer is on the custom install option in MS Office, which is disabled by default.
