Hey everyone,

Anyone know if it is possible to create a presentation in open office or powerpoint then make an executable file to auto play the presentation. I would like to send the prez on a cd and am sure not every user will be bothered or will not want to download open office, some will not have powerpoint and some will not be comp savvy.
The idea is to run the show once the cd is inserted, or have the user click one exe file to open the show. Open office does not have such a utility and since i do not have powerpoint, would like to figure a way out of making the show as easy to view for all users as possible.

All replies are much appreciated.
Thanks

Darren

Hi Darren.
You can do it with PP using the "Pack and Go", or later versions, "Package for cd" options.
The system used for viewing does not need to have PP installed.
Create and distribute a self-running PowerPoint presentation
You would need to have PP installed to create it however. :thumbsup:
Do you any burning software installed that will create a video cd, such as NeroVision?
If so, use it to create an mpeg or .avi video file viewable in a browser or dvd\cd player.

Dear Hitsquad,

Your too good.
Any idea if nero will create movie using open office impress app?..I do have office 2000 but dont think it comes with powerpoint. I d/loaded open office from Sun and hoped impress would offer the same presentation utils as ppoint. They say open office is a tough match for microsoft.

I do have nero and am hoping for luck.

thanks for the help.

I don't use OpenOffice (use office 2003) but it's my understanding that Impress produces presentations in .swf (shockwave) format. There are users here who use OpenOffice and can tell you more however.
If you have Nero Vision, you simply add your images and any sounds you want to play in your video cd without the need for any other program.
Are you using still images or video to create this presentation?

I'm using still images and hyperlinks, with a couple of movie clips throughout. Currently there is no sound but I'd like to synchronize it if i could. Of course with that there are copyright infringement issues which I will no doubt adhere to rather than lose to.

If you know anyone who could help me out I would appreciate it rather greatly and thank you for your input. most helpful as always.
Darren
