The Options dialog box opens from the Options button shown on the preceding screen.
Viewer You only need to include the viewer if PowerPoint won't be installed on the presenting computer.
Linked files Your linked files (such as sounds and videos) get copied into the folder or onto the CD when you package. Better yet, the links in your presentation update to reflect the files' new location.
Passwords If you want to limit who can open and change your presentation files, give the files a password. When you set a password in Package for CD, the password applies to .ppt, .pot, .pps, and .mht (presentations saved as a Web page) files in the package. The password applies to the packaged versions of the presentations only and does not affect passwords you may have set in the original files (using the Security tab of the Options dialog box, Tools menu). (Note that in the packaging, .mht files are converted to .ppt files, as PowerPoint cannot protect a Web page.)
If any of the packaged files already has a password, you're prompted about whether you want the password you've specified in Package for CD to override the password that's already applied to a file. If you click No, then the password required to open the packaged version of that file is the same as the file's original password. If you click Yes, the password for the packaged file changes to what you currently specify—but the original file keeps its original password.
