My OS is Win XP,Home,SP(2).
I have downloaded and used without problems, Powerpoint viewer 2003. Recently I tried to view a slideshow I received in a message however up popped a PowerPoint Viewer error message indicating "PowerPoint Viewer cannot open a file "RUNINT~1.pps".
A Google search for RUNINT~1.pps,did not disclose any information that would help me in this regard.
Can anyone tell me what is the difference between this file and other .pps files I have viewed before without problem. Thank you in advance. Mchaggis.

airaced57,

I'm not a powerpoint wizard by any stretch. But it appears that the file with the ~ is a copy and may be corrupted. I also found this in my search for your issue, How to modify a PowerPoint .PPS file hth

Thank you for your reply animal. I tried the site you supplied and changed the file extension but that did not work. I have to agree with you. The file is more likely corrupt. I appreciate your assistance. Cheers, mchaggis
