win32 Application error message
I get the message when I go to open up attachments sent to me by friends, In one case, it was a audio file that I sent him last year. Now I can't open it. The message that comes up reads


c:\windows\temporary internet files\content. IE5\UV2EM55M\christmas.(christmas is part of the name of the file) PPS is not a valid win32 application.

I do take Microsoft updates and it probably one of those that has changed something in my system. What do I have to look at to change things back so I don't get this message.

pps extension is a microsoft power point file, do you have power point installed on your system.

Try saving the file to you desktop and then opening it rather than out of the temp files. You should be able to right click and choose save as

Hi Brian,

I don't know if I have POWER POINT. How do I find out?

I have tried opening these from both temp and after saved to disk. I get the same result: the above typt of message.

Brian,

Thank you. The Power Point Viewer installation was right on the money. I was able to open the file that had been giving me problems and hopefully I won't see that message again on future stuff.

Many thanks.

John
