I have no sound with powerpoint attachments in outlook express, the problem started when I was running pp viewer 97. since then I have done a repair installation, xp home sp2 and updated to pp viewer 2003, the problem still exists with outlook express attachments. pp viewer 2003 will play attachments with sound that I have previously saved from outlook express to a different folder with no problems when pp viewer 97 was running. I do daily scans with avg anti virus, avg anti spyware, spybot search and destroy and a lavasoft adaware 6. help please.

Well...you need to use the correct viewer for the version of PP used, I don't believe that there is automatic compatibility between 97 and 03 versions of PP.

If the files were made with a particular version of PP, you need to use that version on those pics.

Louis, I believe the PowerPoint viewer 2003 is backwards compatible with 97 files too. Check this article out.

Thanks, you are right, but that link is for PPV 2007, not 2003. For 2003:

Wrong guess by me :thumbsup:, I don't use the viewers.
