PowerPoint Viewer

The Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/2002 Viewer (ppview.exe) enables you to share PowerPoint 97, PowerPoint 2000, or PowerPoint 2002 presentations with users who do not have PowerPoint installed on their systems. The PowerPoint Viewer allows users to view and print PowerPoint presentations, but it does not allow them to edit the presentations. You can find this downloadable file on the Office XP Resource Kit Downloads page.

Install the PowerPoint Viewer from CD

The PowerPoint Viewer must be installed separately from the other applications — it is not installed by the Office Resource Kit Setup program. To install the PowerPoint Viewer, run Ppview97.exe from the \Files\PFiles\ORKTools\ORK10\Tools\Pptview\ folder on the Office Resource Kit CD. If you are installing the PowerPoint Viewer from an Office Enterprise Edition CD, the path is \ORK\Files\PFiles\ORKTools\ORK10\Tools\Pptview\.
