    Just a note about the powerpoint viewer. You cannot have spaces in your path or filename. It only supports 8.3 filenames.

    Actually the best thing is for you to attach a copy of your project file so we can help. Please post the complete .am4 project file. One more thing, are you a trial user or are you using full version?

    Path to PPVIEW32.EXE...
    Lorne,

    My path is really on my C:? drive, but I want a user with no PowerPoint Viewer or program to run the preso from his laptop.

    The PPVIEW32.EXE file is in my Distribution folder in this order:
    c:\My Documents\AutoPlay Media Studio Projects\Denver\Distribution\CD_VirtualDnvr\pprun\ installer

    I would like to be able to include everything the presenter needs on one autorun CD.

    Thanks

    How can I get the mouseover text message to go away in view mode?
    Permanently? Just remove the text in the Tooltip text field on the Attributes tab for the object in question.

    Or do you mean something else?

    Re: %srcdir%

    Where is the PPVIEW32.EXE file located?

    Here's what you want:

    In File to execute:

    <<path to PPVIEW32.EXE>>\PPVIEW32.EXE

    In Command line arguments:

    %SrcDir%\CD_virtualDnvr\pprun\PR_Ovr6show.pps

    In Working directory, either:

    %SrcDir%\CD_virtualDnvr\pprun

    ...or nothing at all (just leave the Working directory blank).

    Re: %srcdir%

    Lorne,

    Thanks for the fast response

    Here is what my cryptic files are:
    > PR_Ovr6show.pps is the presentation itself
    > CD_virtualDnvr is my folder directly under the 'Distribution'
    folder on my C:/ drive
    >pprun is the name of the folder that the actula presentation is in

    I am trying to break up the string into Command Line:
    PPVIEW32.EXE present\PR_Ovr6show.pps
    then the working directory:
    %SrcDir%\CD_virtualDnvr\pprun

    I have tried a lot of variations on this theme, but to no avail.

    That command doesn't really use a proper syntax at all.

    Copy and paste the action that you're using, and I'll take a look at it if you want.

    %srcdir%

    In trying to map the command string to execute PPVIEW.32 to launch a PowerPoint presentation, I have only been able to execute from my local C:\ drive but not the distribution folder.
    I want the user , on mouse click to be able to launch the PPViewer that launches the Powerpoint preso.
    Here is the command that is INCORRECT:
    %SrcDir%\Foldername\pprunPPVIEW32.EXE folderthat presoisin\Powerpoint preso.pps

    --also--
    How can I get the mouseover text message to go away in view mode?

    Many thanks
Working...
