Filmstrip Play Demo Demo button

Want to truly impress your customers with a multimedia presentation about your business? You can easily make your Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 presentations more portable by burning them onto a CD. By including the new free PowerPoint 2003 presentation viewer on the CD, presentations can be distributed to and viewed by audiences who do not use Microsoft Office.

PowerPoint 2003 is open, showing the Alpine Ski House presentation. The pointer clicks through the slides to show the professional-looking presentation. I have a great PowerPoint presentation that details the amenities of Alpine Ski House, which I would like to include in a mailing to prospective guests and clients. I can very easily distribute that presentation by using the new Package for CD feature in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003.
The pointer clicks Package for CD on the File menu. The Package for CD dialog box appears. The pointer clicks Options, and then points out the Linked Files and the PowerPoint Viewer check boxes. The Package for CD feature in PowerPoint 2003 produces all the files necessary for a CD to automatically play when inserted into a computer CD or DVD drive, regardless of whether the recipient has PowerPoint or not.
The pointer clicks OK and returns to the Package for CD dialog box. The PowerPoint window disappears and a Microsoft Office Publisher 2003 window appears, showing the Alpine Ski House CD cover. All I have to do is burn the files to CD using my CD burner. I could even use Publisher 2003 to create the CD labels for the CDs.
